Tasting Note:

An earthy clay and mineral inflected nose with a drop of balsamic. The palate has a burlier structure than the Bricco Fiasco, offering notes of blackberry, wild cherry and some herbs. Stony, gripping and savoury finishing on an intense saltiness. From a prime south and south west facing 55-year-old plot in the Serralunga d'Alba commune planted on white clay and limestone soils. Azelia’s vines sit alongside those used for Gaja’s Sperss. Aged in the traditional way, for 28 months in large slavonian oak botti.
