Reviews
• Robert Parker: 89 The 2017 Langhe Nebbiolo creeps up on your senses with soft intensity and an elegantly streamlined style. The wine hints at the intensity and power of Nebbiolo in the classic 2016 vintage; however, the focus is squarely on primary aromas. Indeed, this wine is only aged in stainless steel, which is unusual for Langhe Nebbiolo. Production is 19,000 bottles.

Luigi Scavino and his family own vineyards in both Castiglione Falletto (Bricco Fiasco with sandy soils) and Serralunga d'Alba (Margheria, San Rocco and Bricco Voghera for the Riserva).
