Paulo Scavino

Piedmont Winemaker Elisa Scavino is considered to be one of the region’s rising alchemists. She is the great-granddaughter of Lorenzo Scavino, the founder of the venerable Castiglione Falletto Winery in 1921. Following in the footsteps of her grandfather, Paolo, and father, Enrico, she is the fourth generation to produce high quality wines from the three local grapes, Dolcetto, Barbera, and Nebbiolo. Elisa is proud of all their Barolo. She says they all have a special value for different reasons. The Barolo Bric dël Fiasc is the connection to the family’s origins and not only for its qualities, its elegance and force, but also it’s particularly dear to Elisa for all that it means and the memories it recalls. It’s a continuous learning process and her father Enrico as a great teacher. He inspires and he spurs Elisa all the time. Working with Nebbiolo in Langa imposes a certain rigor. It demands vinification in the most pure way, without dispensable interferences, in order to show into the wines the truest expression, the beautiful grape’s nuances and finesse.
