Notes

Luigi Scavino was fortunate enough to set up a contract for this stunning 50-year-old Serralunga vineyard from the 2000 vintage. This is a Riserva wine that will only be made in the best vintages, and what a debut! The palate is bursting with flavours, notes of aniseed, black cherry, cassis, cinnamon and liquorice. A serious, multi-layered and highly pleasurable wine aged in new and second year oak for three years, with two years’ bottle age. Stunning!

Notes
The 2000 Barolo Riserva Voghera-Brea presents aromas of licorice, roses and tar. Deeply colored, it is a wine of notable concentration, with notes of dense sweet fruit, minerals and scorched earth, finishing with good persistence, although it lacks the multi-layered complexity of the 2001s. Like so many wines of the vintage it is drinking well today. 2000 is the first vintage of this wine, which is made from a newly acquired parcel of old vines in Serralunga. Azelia has also produced this Riserva in vintages 2001 and 2004.

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.
