10 Oct Paolo Scavino Tasting Fri. 10/13
Friday, October 13
5 to 7pm
At the Bar
We are very excited to welcome back our friend Riccardo Sgirra from the notable Paolo Scavino winery. This incredible estate produces classical, traditional-style wines that honor the traditions of Piedmont winemaking. These are serious red wines and very fairly priced for the quality level. As a special treat, we’re including a lush and exotic white (the only white wine they make!). Riccardo is also bringing some surprise large format bottles for tasting!!
Wines arrive Thursday!
2016 Paolo Scavino Langhe Bianco “Sorriso”
On Sale $12.99
Blend of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Viognier. Pale yellow with emerald hues. Fresh and charming nose with white flowers, sage, yellow and orange fruits in addition to mineral notes. The delicate flavors continue on the palate where a soft texture is combined with sapid and cleaning acidity.
2016 Paolo Scavino “Vino Rosso”
On Sale $11.99
Piedmont does not have an IGT appellation, but if it did this wine would be a perfect candidate. The 2016 Rosso is a blend of Nebbiolo (declassified from its DOC status), Dolcetto and Barbera. This is a great value buy to serve at informal occasions. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and each variety is vinified separately before the final assembly is made. The succulence and richness of the mouthfeel recalls the Dolcetto grape, but the bouquet shows some of the wild berry and licorice aromas that you would otherwise associate with Nebbiolo.

2013 Paolo Scavino Barolo Langhe Nebbiolo
On Sale $18.99
Scavino’s 2013 Langhe Nebbiolo is a juicy, fruit-forward wine to drink for its supple personality and overall near-term appeal. Hints of tobacco, dried cherry and wild flowers add shades of nuance on the close.

2013 Paolo Scavino Barolo “Cannubi”
On Sale $64.99
Aromas of strawberries, flowers and tea follow through to a full body, a dense center palate and a tannic and structured finish. Big and powerful Cannubi. Tiny production. Drink in 2022.

2013 Scavino Barolo DOCG
On Sale $18.99 (375ml half bottle)
Wow. Love the perfumes to this with plums, cherries and hints of flowers. Full body, chewy tannins, polish and precision. Relatively delicate finish. Drink in 2018.
