95pts Jeb Dunnuck

Taking on a deeper profile, the 2019 Barolo Prapo exudes notes of kirsch, black licorice, polished leather, and lavender. Full-bodied and approachable, its refined, ripe tannins do well to accept the ripeness of the fruit that remains pure. It has a silkiness in its texture and fruit profile without losing structure and delivers notes of black tea, truffle, and blackberry as well as a long finish. Best After 2025

95pts Wine Spectator

This fresh, vibrant red marries cherry, plum and floral flavors with woodsy underbrush, cut grass and tobacco notes. Dense and unyielding on the finish for now, yet there's ample fruit and a long, complex, mineral-tinged aftertaste.

94pts James Suckling

Aromas of cherries, strawberries and rose stems follow through to a full-bodied palate with fine, velvety tannins that fill the mouth. Long and pretty textured finish. This will age beautifully.

93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

With the black label, this wine draws its fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, or the village that usually reveals the most structured and muscular expressions of Nebbiolo. Indeed, the Paolo Scavino 2019 Barolo Prapò exhibits a medium dark garnet color. The wine's texture is certainly broader and richer in terms of mouthfeel, and there is some rusty nail or crushed red rock on the close. Tar, cola and licorice emerge with time.

Winemaker Notes

Despite the Barolo from Serralunga have always been described as austere ones, Paolo Scavino finds in Prapò many element of softness and elegance. It’s a deep wine characterized by an intense garnet red color, dark fruit like figs and black cherries, spicy notes such as nutmeg and black pepper. The texture is dense, rich and charming. The tannins have a full and round grain.

Winery Notes

Paolo Scavino winery was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto from Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. Enrico Scavino together with the daughters Enrica and Elisa, fourth generation, run the family Estate. Through 70 years of work, Enrico Scavino has researched and purchased some of the most historic vineyards cultivated with Nebbiolo for Barolo to experience and show the uniqueness of each site.

The Scavino family owns 30 hectares entirely in the Barolo area and vinifies grapes from their own vineyards located in the villages of Castiglione Falletto, Barolo, La Morra, Novello, Serralunga d’Alba, Verduno, Roddi and Monforte d’Alba.

The approach to both viticulture and winemaking is scrupulous, respectful and is aimed at preserving and therefore enhancing the expression and peculiarities of each vineyard in the wines.
