Vinicola Paolo Scavino

History

A name a family. The name is of the founder: Paolo Scavino wha established the estate in 1921 in Castiglione Falletto, in the heart of the Langhe area and one of the historical townships of Barolo. Paolo immediately started to bottle the best wines.

The name remained even after the passing away of Paolo Scavino. It is a remembrance, a sign of affection and of gratitude. At the present time there are two other generations of Scavino: Enrico who followed in the footsteps of his father Paolo ever since he was a child and saw the results of his work grow while he gradually entered, step by step and nearly walking on tiptoe, into the Olympus of the Barolo producers and the young Enrica and Elisa, the daughters of Enrico and of Anna Maria, that are starting to take care of the management of the estate with new pasion and skill.

A family history of women and men of the Langhe area, bound to the soil, to the vineyards, to the slow and practically ancient rhythms of the Piedmont countryside. The roots of the Scavino family are in this land that make who was born here lucky: Barolo, exclusively made with indigenous Nebbiolo grapes and one of the greatest wines in the world, is produced here. One of the few wines that speaks Piedmontese, but that is understood by everyone from the USA to Japan.

 

Philosophy

The Scavino family members say that wine is made in the vineyard. They are growers convinced that there is a tie with the territory, with nature, with the changing of seasons and with the changing of vintages. They have a modern cellar, they are considered innovators, they have made extremely modern choices in their production techniques, they travel the world presenting their bottles. But wine made in the vineyard, they keep repeating due to their longstanding experience. Wine is made taking care of the old vines, that are able to offer little fruit, but of unforgettable quality. Wine is made by thinning the clusters without any comprimise: very few clusters, the best, only the essence of Nebbiolo. The family works in the vineyard with its heart and the passion of teh experience passed on by three generations of vignerons of the Langhe

 

Cellar

There is no place for the discussion about innovators and traditionalists in the cellar: there are barriques and large oak casks as Barolo needs bboth type of wood. As a matter of fact, the most suitable type of wood is needed, consequentlyevery year the barrels and casks of the best French tonneleries are tried out and the ones that offeer the best results for Baolo are chosen. What counts are the results and the wine, not what is in fashion. And time counts because it is time that raws up the history of a family, of an estate, of a territory, of an unforgettable wine. This is why the Scavino family have a large modern cellar where they keep their memory, that is all the Barolo crus, vintage after vintage, so that the emotion of drinking wines can be rediscovered in time.
