Paolo Scavino Carobric, Barolo DOCG, Italy 2000
WINE ADVOCATEThe 2000 Barolo Carobric (magnum) is an exotic, full-bodied wine loaded with scorched earth, licorice, tar and smoke, all of which add considerable nuance to a massive core of fruit. This hulking, seamless Barolo is at least a few years from early maturity and should continue to drink well for many, many years. It is simply magnificent. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
WINE SPECTATORWonderfully fresh and floral, with strawberry, raspberry and cut cedar aromas. Full-bodied, with refined tannins and a clean, fresh finish. Builds on the palate. Very elegant and long. Not quite the 1997 or 1995, but clearly outstanding. Best after 2008.
VINOUSThe 2000 Carobric is not terribly expressive in its aromatics, but it really shines on the palate where it opens to reveal masses of deeply concentrated fruit and brooding, full-bodied personality. As it sits in the glass notes of tar, licorice and tobacco gradually emerge, but it remains a densely packed wine in need of at least several years of cellaring. It also comes across as the most successful vintage for this wine and is irresistible.
