In 1920 Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino began to vinify part of the grapes produced in the family's vineyards, a small rural reality in the heart of the Langhe region, in Castiglione Falletto. His son Alfonso started enthusiastically to bottle the wine produced and thanks to Luigi's father, Lorenzo, with perseverance and willpower, the wines were for the first time exported.

The Azienda Agricola Azelia, in the centre of the area of Barolo production, is nowadays composed of 16 hectares and it produces, on average, 80,000 bottles per year. Luigi is supported by his wife Lorella and his son Lorenzo, who bears the name of his grandfather and who represents the fifth generation of wine producers. The family management is essential as it permits an extreme precision in every step of the production.

Great care is given to the work in the vineyards. Wine is made there from old vines which produce very few grapes. The low yields are further reduced through the green harvest, indispensable to select fruits, to have a uniform ripening and an impeccable quality.

It is fundamental a scrupulous attention in the cellar where the respect for the tradition does not exclude the contribution of modern techniques.

TASTING NOTES: The highest possible quality in the bottle is the main goal for Azelia. The processes adopted in the cellar represent a kind of fusion of modernity and tradition : the Past, the story of four generations of wine producers is maintained with the inclusion of modern techniques. Louis says that the right is in the middle ground. It's all about balance. All the wines held within rotofermenters fermentation and maceration at a controlled temperature. They are never added yeasts or enzymes, everything is done by the natural wild yeast. During the aging the company uses, depending on the wine, barrels or casks so as to allow each wine to express itself in the best way. No wine undergoes filtration or clarification of any kind. The stabilization takes place by gravity.
