2018 Scavino Bianco Sorriso - A blend of Chardonnay (40%), Sauvignon blanc (40%) and Viognier (20%). Fragrant aromatics, crisp acidity and energizing texture. Perfect for by the glass. Vinification and aging in stainless steel. No malolactic fermentation.
2018 Scavino Dolcetto d'Alba - A juicy, black cherry—infused red. Vibrant and firm, with hints of chocolate and earth adding depth. Shows fine length and purity.
2018 Scavino Barbera d'Alba - 100% Barbera from Bricco Manescotto vineyard in the village of La Morra. The high elevation, eastern exposure and well-drained soil of this vineyard enhance the elegant side of this wine. Vinification and aging in stainless steel.
2015 Scavino Barolo - This Barolo represents the history and tradition of blending different crus of Nebbiolo in order to create a house style. The same care and quality work are employed on this wine as for all of the cru Barolo. Sourced from the top performing plots of 7 single vineyards in the village of Castiglione Falletto (Rocche Moriondino, Vignolo and Pernanno vineyards), Barolo (Albarella, Terlo and Vignane vineyards) and Serralunga d’Alba (San Bernardo vineyard).
2015 Scavino Barolo Monvigliero - The Grand Cru vineyard of Verduno. First vintage was 2007. Up north in the Barolo region, this vineyard lies in a very special microclimate: warm during the day and cool at night thanks to the fresh air currents from the Tanaro river. Very elegant and focused with nice tension.
2003 Scavino Barolo Bricco Ambrogio - The most important vineyard in the village of Roddi. The Bricco Ambrogio vineyard sits at 275 meters above sea level and faces south, southeast, with vines planted to soils of marl and limestone. Made for the first time in 2002 and nearly a monopole. Perfumed, generous in its expression and soft texture.
