2016 Paolo Scavino "Bricco Ambrogio" Barolo (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1523749 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Extremely attractive aromas of dried strawberries, rose petals and dried spices, such as cloves, following through to a medium to full body. Very deep and dense center palate, yet it remains bright and vivid. Flavorful finish. Give this time to open. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the comune or village of Roddi, the Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Bricco Ambrogio offers an open-knit and accessible personality. The bouquet of this wine is very distinctive, offering some cedar, spice and toasted hazelnut that you don't get in the other Baroli in the collection from the Scavino family. Those nutty aromas cede to dark fruit, plum, spice and grilled herb. The wine is beautifully put together, showing the classic balance and energy of the vintage. (ML) Inner quote mark (7/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Barolo Bricco Ambrogio is very pretty in 2016. Medium in body and supple, the Bricco Ambrogio captures all of the personality of the year in a mid-weight style that makes it easy to drink and enjoy young. The balance of fruit, acid and structure is just superb here. Pretty floral and spice overtones add nuance. Bricco Ambrogio is always the most accessible of the Scavino cru Barolos. The 2016 is the finest wine from this site yet. (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Fragrant blue flower, exotic spice, toasted notes and menthol aromas mingle with scents of fruitcake. Full bodied and concentrated, the palate doles out fleshy black cherry, steeped prune, and chocolate-covered coconut alongside enveloping, velvety tannins before a drying, almost salty close. (KO) Inner quote mark (8/2020)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is velvety and inviting, the open texture setting the stage for black cherry, plum and iron flavors. Spice and tobacco elements chime in as this cruises to a long, sumptuous finish. Shows fine harmony and should be approachable earlier than some peers. (BS) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

93 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is fleshy and immediately appealing in 2016, its flavors of macerated cherry and plum laced with warm spices and wrapped in lush, round tannins. Inner quote mark (12/2020)
