Founded in 1921 by Lorenzo Scavino and his son Paolo in Castiglione Falletto, the Paolo Scavino winery has always lived up to certain traditions: passion for the land and the wines that can express it. Since he started working at his family's winery in 1951 (at age 10!), Enrico Scavino has carried on the tradition of intensely terroir-driven wines. He now works with his two daughters, Elisa and Enrica (fourth generation), and their wines are well regarded for their purity and elegance. Scavino shows consistently that their attention to detail and precision is applied to not only their Barolo wines but all their wines.
The vines for the Dolcetto d'Alba are up to 50 years old, making a deeply colored wine in the glass. Fresh aromatics of ripe cherry, blueberry, spices, and flowers are grounded by tannin and earthiness. Compared with a variety such as Barbera. Dolcetto has more-ample tannins and lower acidity, but both varieties share a quality of accessibility in their youth and are often consumed in Piedmont while waiting for the Nebbiolo wines to mature. Dolcetto is the everyday wine typically combined with Piedmontese antipasti, a great start to any meal, but it’s versatile enough to match with pizza or pastas with mushrooms or meat sauces, or a simply roasted chicken.
