Tasting Note:

Full, pungent and ripe aromatics hit you straightaway. There is a sweet earthiness and spice to this. Dense, rich and sumptuous, the broadest and fullest of the estate’s three crus. Voluptuous, very powerful fruit. Complex dried sweet spices, fleshier plum and plum liqueur fruit set in a robust tannic framework. An Azelia monopole San Rocco is a top notch Serralunga vineyard that faces south and south west, where the soils are practically 100% clay, a very hard compact grey clay. The vines are 60 years old and the wine is aged in the same way as the Bricco Fiasco, for 24 months in 8% new oak barriques.
