A name, a family. the name is of the founder: Paolo Scavino who estabilished 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 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 Anna Maria, that are starting to take care of the management of the estate with new passion and skill.
A family history of women and men of the Langhe area, bound to the soil, to the vineyards, to the slow and pratically ancient rhythms of the Piedmont coutryside. The roots of the Scavino family are in this land that make who was born here luky: 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.
