Paolo Scavino Vino de Tavola Rosso, 2009

Paolo Scavino is a producer of very good, and expensive Barolos which take many years to show their best. Priced at about $15, Scavino's Rosso table wine is made as an every day, drink now wine, a blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Dolcetto and Cabernet Sauvignon from younger vines on the estate.

My first impression is that this is a fruity, straightforward wine. There are the aromas of roses and red cherries that you expect from Nebbiolo plus the elegance of Barbera and Cabernet and the raciness of Dolcetto. I like it. And as I continue drinking, I like it more and more. The aromas and flavors are subtle, persistent and very expressive. This is not a wine for the cellar but much more than a simple every day wine.
