Other Info:
One of Italy’s great Estates with holdings in Barolos fi nest Crus, Cannubi, Bric del Fiasc and Rocche dell’Annuziata. Along with Elio Altare, Enrico Scavino is surely responsible for the great reputation Piedmont has today. Since the 1980s he has been crafting benchmark modern Barolo. Through high fermentation temperatures, short maceration and finishing in a mixture of French oak barriques and the larger traditional ‘Botte’, Enrico makes svelte wines whose polish and sophistication enhance rather than shroud their character and typicity.

Sweet spice and spiced fruit characteristics, much more savoury complexity than usual, with aeration those classic, ethereal Bricco Ambroggio flavours gently unravel, offering suggestions of cranberry, sloe and redcurrant. This is juicy rich and refreshing whilst retaining a fine, strengthening thread of binding tannins.

For real blow-the-budget opulence, do as the Piemontese do pair this Barolo with white truffles from Alba
