Description: The Nebbiolo grapes, in the great crus of Barolo, are traditionally grown on the hilltop, while Dolcetto vineyards stand at the foot of the hills and the Barbera vineyards stand at mid altitude. This young, fresh, fruity, extremely clean wine, that is supported by a good acidity content, is a further tribute to the country roots of the Scavino family.

Paolo Scavino is an historical winery of the Barolo region. It was founded in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto from Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo. For four generations the family focuses on producing high quality wines from the three local grapes Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo. The family Estate vinifies its own grapes from 23 hectares in the Barolo area and produces approximately 120’000 bottles par year. Today the winery is run by Enrico Scavino and his daughters Enrica and Elisa. The Scavino family distinguishes itself from the beginning for the scrupulous care of the vineyards and passion for terroir. Their core belief is the supremacy of the viticulture above the oenology. They work to show and valorise the unique expression and identity of the 19 historical cru they own in 6 of the 11 villages of Barolo area. Such fragmentation is quite exceptional but extremely valuable. It’s an opportunity to valorise Nature diversities. Purity of expression, complexity and elegance it’s what they aim for their wines.
