You may have read about them here before, but it’s worth mentioning them again. Paolo Scavino is at the bottom of the hill of Castiglione Falletto (right next to Azelia), and guess what: Azelia and Scavino are related. I forget exactly how (even though they have explained it to me a million times). Anyhow, at the winery you will most likely meet Riccardo Sgarra. He is not related to the Scavino family by blood, but it doesn’t matter because he’s been there so long that I consider him part of the Scavino family. And he’ll give you a wonderful experience at the winery.
The winery has been and is currently being “updated”, and it’s really beautiful. I can’t wait to see the final result. In addition to a beautiful Cantina, they have an impressive lineup of wines. In addition to the dolcetto, barbera and langhe nebbiolo they have 5 cru barolo and a riserva. One of the more “famous” is the Bric del Fiasc, contains grapes from the local Castiglione Falletto vineyard Fiasco. And if you have the chance, you should of course try the riserva, Rocche dell’Annunziata. If you go, say hi to Riccardo (and Elisa if she’s there). And if you’re a dog person, give Ercole a big hug!
