The purity of fruit here is remarkable. The dark, brooding quality that is often present in the wine is absent, while floral, perfumed elements dominate in this vintage. The fruit remains dense, ripe and primary...remarkable...
Sexy aromas of dark cherry, redcurrant, smoke, tobacco and minerals. At once silky-sweet and vinous; pliant yet firm. Finishes broad and very long, with suave, fine-grained tannins. A beauty.
Sliced plum, floral and leaf aromas. Full-bodied, with very soft, velvety tannins with rich, generous fruit. Long and powerful.
...the palate is all that we’ve come to expect from Scavino, with wonderfully pure red fruits and subtle notes of mineral and sous bois for complexity. Tar and dark chocolate wrap up the supple finish.
