Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Azelia, Barolo, Riserva, Bricco Voghera, 2010

Whilst there is lots of interest and complex maturity on the nose, with its discrete and refined savoury notes, there is life and vibrancy too. The persistent sophisticated flavours of dried fruit, dried flower, black tea and sous bois are thread together by a perky acidity. The aromas and flavours develop further with just a little air developing into fruitier violet, cherry and dried blueberry characteristics infused with sweet Asian spice touches. Intense but dynamic and super fine tuned, a hint of the classic 2010 structure provides some bass, depth and solidity but without overpowering the exquisite refinement of the fruit. Seamless power and complexity.

Azelia

Azelia

Owner Luigi Scavino, cousin and neighbour of Piemonte legend Enrico Scavino, started off life as one of the typical modern Piedmont producers: no expense was spared as new oak was used for the top wines, yields were low and the sparkling new fermenting vats were of stainless steel. Many of these aspects still apply however Azelia have refined their techniques enormously over the years, rarely using more than 20% new oak and employing large botti casks as well as barriques for the ageing process. They are now very among Barolo's leading lights. They produce a superb Dolcetto planted at 500 metres above sea level on a south facing slope in th prime Montelupo district and their oak-aged Barbera is extremely fine too. All of their Nebbiolo holdings are spread out over the Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga regions where the vine produces full bodied, intense and complex wines. The top two wines are the ethereal but powerful Bricco Fiasco frmo Castiglione (the same vineyard as Scavino's Bric del Fiasc) and the explosive, spicy San Rocco from Serralunga. In only the best of vintages a Barolo Riserva is made from the ideally situated vineyard in Serralunga, Voghera.
