Tasting Note:

More ethereal, precise and downright seductive than ever before. Elegantly perfumed, crisp, floral red berry characteristics, heady rose petal overtones, very fresh with a gently warming sweetness mixed with touches of smoke and cigar leaf, The tannins are fine grained and the freshness thrilling. Stylish and impeccably balanced. One of the vintage's most refined wines. A great Castiglione vineyard, planted on a mixture of sand and clay, the same vineyard as Scavino’s Bric dël Fiasc but named using the standard Italian dialect as opposed to that of Piedmont. The vines were planted by Luigi Scavino's father 65 years ago. Aged in large Slavonian oak ‘botti’ and barriques with less than 20% new oak for 24 months. A cuvée that Azelia first bottled up separately in 1978.
