Federico Scarzello is the third generation to make wine at his family’s estate in Barolo, taking over in 2001. Since then he has gone from strength to strength, and has been tipped as one of Barolo’s rising stars for his respect for traditional winemaking combined with an utter dedication to quality.
Winemaking at Scarzello is very much in the tradtional style. Fermentations are long – in some vintages over 50 days on the skins – and the wines are given extended ageing in large old oak casks and bottle. In practice, this means that Scarzello wines are released a year or so later than others. The wines display texture and finesse, and a subtle power that demands attention.
