Tasting Note:

A different expression of Serralunga, offering rich, powerful fruit with a minerality that sits much more in the background. Big flavours of dark fruit, cinnamon spice and mocha roll and expand across the palate, enveloping the senses as the go. Muscular, complex, rich and bold. 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.
