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 2013 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is one of the most gracious and delicate wines I have ever tasted from this site. Sweet red cherry, kirsch, mint, cranberry and white pepper give the 2013 its distinctive high toned personality. Moreover, the firm, searing tannins that are so typical of this site are remarkably polished. Readers should expect an aromatic, perfumed Barolo built on grace more than power. The Bricco Fiasco was aged in French oak barrels, with about 10% new wood.
