2002 Paolo Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio
Intense garnet in color, this Barolo has an equally pronounced nose with fruity, mineral and spicy aromas. Particularly noteworthy are the elegant notes of red fruit, prunes, black cherries, and rasberries. The mineral quality continues on the palate, where intense and enveloping tannins are well balanced with a fresh acidity. The strong finish on this wine makes it a good companion to flavorful meat dishes, particularly braised red meat, stews, game, and roasts, as well as "fonduta" and truffles.
