La Carlina Barolo 'Grinzane Cavour' DOCG 2017 (Piedmont, Italy) "...dark fruit, dried herbs, rose petal..."
The brother and sister duo of Camilla and Francesco Scavino founded this small winery in 2014 at the foot of the Medieval castle that towers over the village of Grinzane Cavour.
The name “La Carlina” is a reference to the farm of their grandmother where the family would celebrate and party, which is also the place where Camilla and Francesco began experimenting with winemaking as teenagers. Vineyards are scattered between the hills of the Langhe and Monferrato, and farming is organic.
La Carlina’s releases are progressive examples of Piedmont’s landscape – Deeply colored, opulent wines with tremendous purity and sense of place
"Bright ruby color with well defined aromatics of red fruit, dried rose and sweet spice. Supple and vibrant, this Barolo reveals a remarkable texture both velvety and sinewy with a fine and long finish."
