Paolo Scavino Prapò is a territorial expression of the municipality of Serralunga d’Alba. The soil of this area is rich in minerals and steep slopes, which helps this wine obtain a robust body that loves aging. As a result, it has great fruit and aromatic components both on the palate and the nose.

For lovers of full-body Barolo, this is an excellent style.

Clear

The grape of this vineyard comes from a plot smaller than a hectare in Prapo’s vineyard, where only five producers are getting their grapes. Its terrific exposure helps to have an outstanding phenolic presence, and the soil is a mix of brown-orange sand and marlstone veins. This vintage has been a superb wine production of the Scavino family since they bought it in 2008.

Tasting

Rich and complex red wine of the Barolo area. Darker red fruit profile on the nose alternating with spices and dry floral elements and the distinctive sense of tobacco and earth. The palate is generous in the tannins, acidity and minerality.

Food pairing

It pairs well with red meat cooked on BBQ and Indian dishes with curry and is great with flavourful vegetarian dishes.
