A fresh and chewy red with plums, iodine, leather and a chocolate character. Full body, an excellent tannin structure and a flavorful finish. Extremely well done for the vintage. Needs two or three years to soften.

This is the first of Scavino's single-vineyard wines that I tasted in this lineup. It is the most accessible of these new releases from 2014. The 2014 Barolo Bricco Ambrogio comes from a unique vineyard site in the comune of Roddi that sticks out like an awkward thumb on a map of the greater Barolo appellation. In fact, Bricco Ambrogio is the only vineyard in Roddi registered to make Barolo. The temperatures are a bit lower here on average, from three to four degrees less that the rest of the appellation. The vines are planted at the top of a steep ridge where they are vulnerable to adverse weather. Despite these hardships, Enrico Scavino was one of the very first to believe in the potential of this cru. Soils consist of gray marl with layers of yellow sand. The wine presents a light and floral disposition with direct and immediate intensity. The finish is silky and long and wraps carefully over the palate.
