Three great tenors are much more effective than a choir. This Barolo is made by blending three important crus cultivated by the azienda agricola Paolo Scavino: Rocche di Castiglione, Fiasco in Castiglione Falletto and the mythical Cannubi of Barolo. The result is one of the most fascinating and sensuous wines of the estate.

Wine AdvocateThe 2007 Barolo Carobric is a powerful wine loaded with dark red fruit, tar, incense and licorice. It is an explosive, flashy Barolo that captures the essence of the year. I find a wonderful balance of precision and richness in the glass, not to mention more than enough fruit to counter the incisive tannins. Though open at the outset, the Carobric shuts down quickly in the glass, suggesting it is headed for a period of dormancy. A second bottle was far more open and expressive and feminine, highlighting how hard it is to understand young Barolo! The Carobric is made from vineyards in Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.
