Castiglione Falletto

The Azelia estate is situated in the commune of Castiglione Falletto, although they also farm sites in Serralunga d’Alba and Montelupo Albese. Founded in 1920 by Lorenzo Scavino, the estate is now run by his grandson Luigi Scavino. It was Luigi’s grandfather that first started vinifying and bottling the wine, rather than selling the fruit, and in turn his father, Lorenzo, that grew the estate’s reputation by exporting the wines for the first time. The first cru wine to be bottled was ‘Bricco Fiasco’, in 1978.

The vineyards are managed meticulously and manually, with great emphasis placed on producing healthy and optimally ripe grapes. In the cantina, practices are an admixture of the modern and the traditional, with no recipe applied, but rather an approach that is responsive to site, vine age and vintage vagaries. Both small and large-format oak is employed.
