Good dark, bright red. Red berries and tobacco on the vinous but reticent nose and palate. Silky and plush, with complex saline quality giving this a savory rather than sweet impression. Not showing quite the lift today of the Carobric but this will need time to express itself. Today the tannins are a bit dusty. This wine comprises a blend of Monvigliero and La Morra fruit. Scavino purchased the latter vines in 2001, noting that the previous owner used too much chemical fertilizer. The wine, he added, has shown considerable improvement in the last three or four years.
