95 points Monica Larner (Wine Advocate): "[$50 list] Showing Enrico Scavino's signature at the bottom of the label, this is a classic expression of Barolo. The Paolo Scavino 2016 Barolo offers impeccable balance and an all-pleasing approach. There is something for everyone, especially die-hard Nebbiolo lovers, with energy, power, aromatic finesse and elegant tannins. Fruit for this wine is sourced from a half-dozen vineyard sites from across the appellation, so you get some of the power of Serralunga d'Alba and the precision of Castiglione Falletto. The scope of this wine is wide and broad, offering sweeping panoramic views of this unique grape from Piedmont. This is a terrific value. Drink: 2023-2040. (Jul 2020)"

95 points James Suckling: "A very pretty, floral Barolo with rose petals, cedar and sandalwood, as well as strawberries and cherries. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, very fine and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Needs three or four years to soften a little. Try after 2022. (8/5/20)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$50 list] This shows some heft, the fleshy texture enveloping cherry, raspberry, floral and spice flavors. Menthol and toasty oak notes add interest, while the long finish is defined by vibrant acidity. Fine harmony and expression. Best from 2022 through 2038. (9/16/20)"

Producer notes: "This Barolo comes from the best plots of their seven cru. The diversity of soils, exposure and altitude characterizes each of these small but very important terroir. Unifying these diversities, the Barolo offers harmony and complexity with an overall character of the zone."
