Description:

P. Scavino Barolo Bric del Fiasc 1990
Piedmont
u: all into neck, light bin soil
"The 1989 and 1990 vintages find Enrico Scavino at a fascinating intersection between traditional and modern styles. Fermentations and macerations lasted roughly 12-14 days, while pumpovers and punchdowns were still performed manually. The malolactic fermentations were done mostly in small French oak barrels. The wines were aged first in French oak and then in larger casks, an approach similar to the one Scavino employs today. What comes through most in these wines is a decided commitment to low yields which is seen in the sheer concentration and depth of fruit." A. Galloni for TWA, 97 pts. 02/10
6 bottles
Provenance: Nantucket Cellar
Estimate $900-1,200
