Tasting Note:

Floral and seductive on the nose, less brooding than Margheria and San Rocco. At the core of this wine is a really juicy, aromatic and very precise array of plum, damson and red berry fruit complimented by a sweetly-scented hint of rose. For all its seduction, there such clear definition, poise and energy to the sun-ripened fruit. Exquisite. The Azelias have one big block of 2.5ha here, but only 3500 bottles are produced as the Cru bottling. The wine is aged in one big barrel for 30 months. Most of the rest of the wine is declassified and blended into the Barolo. Originally they rented the plot and they replanted it entirely while under rental agreement. They then bought ten years later. This was thirty years ago. It has been Luigi Scavino’s baby from start to finish. 2016 was the first vintage vinified separately. The soils are a blend of clay, limestone and chalk.
