2011 Paolo Scavino Barolo Riserva Novantesimo, Piedmont, Italy

Dark cherry aromas are folded within spice, cured tobacco and leather. The best part is that subtle crunch or snap you get on the palate, thanks to the fresh acidity that is neatly integrated within.



In 2011, Scavino bottled a small amount of this wine from a blend of fruit from a handful of top-notch sites to celebrate the winery's 90th anniversary. Barolo endowed with real class and pedigree. The Novantesimo is shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage. Just look at the vineyard sites: Fiasco (Castiglione Falletto), Monvigliero (Verduno), Cannubi and Vignane (Barolo), San Bernardo (Serralunga), Bricco Ambrogio (Roddi) and Rocchi dell'Annunziata (La Morra). This is a fabulous effort.

"Barolo D.O.C.G. Riserva Novantesimo 2011, from some of our historic vineyards, represents my wish to celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the foundation of my family winery Paolo Scavino (1921-2011). For the first time since 1964, I decided to reproduce the bottle and the label used by my grandfather Lorenzo and my father Paolo. They devoted their lives to the care of vineyards, with great passion, tenacity and dignity, animated by love and respect for our land. They always deeply believed, even in the most difficult times, in the greatness of Langa’s hills, in the quality and character of its fruits. To me and my daughters Enrica and Elisa, it is an honor to carry on their values and the work they started." - Enrico Scavino


Paolo Scavino is an historical winery in the Barolo region. It was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto from Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Farming has always been a family tradition and passion.

Enrico Scavino together with the daughters Enrica and Elisa, fourth generation, run the family Estate. He started to work full time in the winery in 1951 when he was 10 years old. A young winemaker who inherited the passion and devotion for the land he belongs to. Through over 60 years of experience his focus has been to invest on important cru of Nebbiolo to show the uniqueness of each terroir.

Their work is inspired by the love and respect they have for their territory and they pursue purity of expression, complexity and elegance for their wines from the three local grapes Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo.

These values and culture have been carried on and never changed.
