Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

A mix of three crus (Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc), the 2010 Barolo Carobric veers towards fruity tones of red cherry and blackberry with pretty floral highlights at the back. The wine is straightforward and confident with a bright, vibrant voice. Drink: 2017-2028. (Monica Larner)

Wine Spectator

Offers classic aromas and flavors of rose, peony, raspberry, licorice and tar, with excellent depth and fine complexity. A rich earthiness develops and the tannins remain refined as this glides to a long aftertaste. The grip on the finish shows potential. Best from 2018 through 2036. 513 cases made.

Stephen Tanzer

Very reticent nose exudes a red berry and smoke perfume. Suave, round and pliant if a bit youthfully reduced and not yet demonstrating its inherent nuance. But the balance and sweetness of this Barolo, not to mention its fine tannins and lovely length, suggest it will be a charmer with four or five years of cellaring.

James Suckling

This is super-elegant and refined with very fine tannins and a long, long finish. I love the subtle character of strawberry, white truffles and dried berries. Better in 2016.

Antonio Galloni

Scavino's 2010 Barolo Carobric stands out for its focus and clarity. Sweet red berries, mint, crushed rocks and rose petals are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. The 2010 Carobric is bright, aromatically lifted and gorgeous in its precision. Today the 2010 is an infant, but it has gorgeous intensity and length. All the elements are in the right place. This is one of the best vintages of Carobric I can recall tasting. As a reminder, Carobric is a blend of fruit from Cannubi, Rocche di Castiglione and Bric del Fiasc.
