The plums, dried strawberries and crushed stones pop out of the glass. Full-bodied and very layered with intense tannins and a chewy finish. This is a tannic and powerful wine. Give this three to four years to soften and come together. The tannins need to resolve. Drink after 2024.
This wine is a historic blend of fruit from Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric dël Fiasc. Because the Cannubi lease was not renewed, Carobric will be very different after the 2018 vintage. However, the Paolo Scavino 2017 Barolo Carobric delivers what we love about this wine. It opens to a medium garnet hue and soft fruit intensity. It exhibits wild cherry and dried raspberry, with spice, smoke and lightly roasted hazelnut.
A blend of three vineyards, the 2017 Barolo Carobric is ripe and confected on the nose with fresh cherry, licorice, and dried apricot. The palate is medium-bodied, with seamlessly fine tannins, pure raspberry leather, delicate tea leaf, and dusty earth. Drink 2021-2034.
Savory aromas of wild thyme and eucalyptus introduce this plum and cherry-filled red. Rich and smooth, with ample tannins emerging on the lingering finish for support. Best from 2023 through 2036.
