A select group of you will appreciate this offer,  your chance to get a perfectly mature Barolo. One of my missions in this business is to develop strong relationships with the best producers all over Italy. Paolo Scavino is certainly one of the best in Barolo. The Scavino family and I have been spending time together in Barolo for many years. And every year we select something from their library for Federal customers. This year it is the 2003 Paolo Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio. This is one of the wines we had for dinner and I am very happy to be able to get it for you.

           As some of you know Paolo Scavino has holdings in top vineyards in Castiglione Falleto, Barolo, La Morra, actually all over the place. Bricco Ambrogio is a vineyard in the small commune of Roddi that Enrico had his eye on for some time. As soon as it was available he scooped it up. The vineyard has varying soils and aspects which allow production of a wine that is both classic and velvety, traditional and modern. The 2003 is drinking perfectly now and will continue at its peak for the next five years or so.
