The Scagliola estate is located on a hill at San Siro in Calosso, a small village in southern Piedmont, on the last hills of Monferrato, on the edge of the Langhe. A bit of sand, some layers of marl and a good dose of limestone characterize the soil. The estate is run by the brothers Maggiorino and Mario Scagliola and was started by their grandfather in 1945.
Mario is in charge of the winery. The previous generations were growers selling their wines in bulk. From 1980 onwards, the Scagliola brothers started investing in facilities to bottle Moscato wines and subsequently added rotofermenters for red wines. The facilities are state of the art and new buildings and machinery are added continuously to allow for growth.
Maggiorino is in charge of the vineyards. The winery currently cultivates 28 hectares of Barbera, Moscato, Brachetto, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Dolcetto and Merlot grapes.
Recognized regularly by Gambero Rosso, Wine Spectator and Parker, Scagliola is truly a hidden gem in the heart of Piedmont.
