    Paolo Scavino Bianco "Sorriso" '20


    Paolo Scavino Bianco "Sorriso" '20

    One of the hidden gems from Paolo Scavino!

    ”Sorriso" started simply as a the "Scavino house wine," something they drank during the warm days to quench their thirst.  Outside of the Nascetta varietal from Novello, the Barolo appellation doesn't have a history of white grape varieties.  In 1996 Enrico Scavino planted two vineyards with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier. One vineyard, a west-facing parcel in Castiglione Falleto, and the other an east-facing parcel in La Morra.   After a few vintages the family realized they were onto something and decided to make the wine available commercially.

    Each variety is fermented separately in stainless steel tanks and the malolactic fermentation is blocked to ensure freshness. The blend is made and rested for a short period. The wine is ready to be enjoyed almost right away once bottled.

    The 2020 vintage is a true standout. Notes of tangerine zest, white flowers and mineral on the nose. Bright and refreshing up front, then filling out on the mid palate with some bitter citrus zest notes and a long and balanced finish.

    A very versatile food wine. Pair with a classic dish like Vitello tonnato, or a major winner for mid-week Thai take-out!
