Item Description: This bottle is in new condition with no known issues

Tasting Notes

Wine Spectator: 94 Points
Round and supple, this is bursting with pure cherry, strawberry, rose and stone flavors. Firms up nicely, with the tannins in balance with the weight and texture. Should come around soon. Best from 2021 through 2042. 537 cases made, 160 cases imported. — BS

Robert Parker: 92 Points
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.

Wine Enthusiast: 94 Points
Iris, rose, menthol and woodland berry aromas come to the forefront. On the succulent vital palate, taut, refined tannins and vibrant acidity provide seamless support for juicy Marasca cherry, crushed raspberry, licorice and white pepper. It's loaded with finesse, and will develop even more complexity with more bottle age. Drink 2022–2028. Kerin O’Keefe
