"The 2016 Barolo Monvigliero is one of the classiest and most polished wines in this range. Silky and floral, with terrific depth. the 2016 captures all of the distinctiveness of this site in its mid-weight personality. Sweet red cherry fruit, blood orange, mint and rose petal add aromatic inner sweetness and perfume, with veins of tannin that give the wine shape and energy. The 2016 is just gorgeous. I can't wait to see how it develops in time."

"The Scavino family has produced a single-vineyard expression of Monvigliero since 2006, as they have long believed in this site in Verduno. The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo Monvigliero opens to blue flowers, dried lavender and lilac. There are pretty fruit tones as well with wild berry and sour cherry. The overall effect is feather light and lithe, with polished streamlined intensity and finely polished tannins. The most beautiful thing about this wine is that it builds in intensity the longer it stays in the glass."
"This Barolo comes from the homonymous vineyard of Monvigliero that can be properly considered the “grand cru” of Verduno village. This cru was first vinified in 2000 vintage and blended intothe Barolo until the 2007 vintage when this vineyard has been bought by the Scavino family and made as a single cru.
Great finesse and aromatic complexity, distinctly floral spicy, savory, balsamic in its expression. The nose is vivid and compound. The texture is focused. An extremely elegant cru, feminine and full of character." -Winery
