"Very good. Although not cellared in perfect conditions over the last five yeras, still seemed to have a good future, but was also drinking nicely right now. Firm structure, balanced, nice fruit with some spiciness. "

94 points "92 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate October 2006 1996 which was the first vintage Scavino produced this wine. Carobric is made from a blend of fruit sourced from the Rocche di Castiglione, Cannubi and Bric del Fiasc vineyards. Scavino’s 1996 Barolo Carobric, tasted from magnum, displays notable vibrancy and freshness in both its aromas and flavors, with layers of sweet dark fruit, minerals and earthiness that are just starting to show some tertiary nuances. It offers notable length, lively acidity and plenty of fruit to drink well for at least another decade. 92/Anticipated maturity: 2006-2016. 91 points, Stephen Tanzer's IWC December 2000 Deep red-ruby. Reticent nose hints at dark berries, licorice and mint. Primary and vibrant in the mouth, with a perfumed floral quality, but a bit aggressive today, and not showing the richness of Scavino vineyard-designated '96s. Finishes slightly minty and firmly tannic. 91(+?) points 94 points, Wine Spectator December 2000 Beautifully crafted, with wonderful aromas of roasted meat, chestnuts, berries and cedar. Full-bodied, round, extremely polished. Long, flavorful finish. Best after 2004. 1,080 cases made. –JS "
