Azelia is still something of a Barolo lover's secret.

Luigi, his wife Lorella and son Lorenzo Scavino own and maintain 16 hectares of vines in Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d'Alba (including Cru Barolo from Margheria, San Rocco and Voghera Brea) and Montelupo Albese (for their...
Dried flowers, dried fruits, great freshness and aromatic intensity. Black cherry, prune, blackberry with rose, violet and dark chocolate. Round tannins that are generous with endless length.

The hill is incredibly steep and in the summer it receives a the perfect amount of sun and warmth. This confers remarkable characteristics to the grapes. The vineyard only covers a really small surface, inferior to 1 hectare, and it produces on average a little more than 3000 bottles.
Released only after resting in the cellar for 6 years. In the Riserva Voghera Brea vineyard, vines more than 75 years old produce unique grapes with incredible concentration. Prolonged aging in wood and in bottle. Elegance, charm and power. Each Riserva is a Riserva to be remembered.

This is a slightly bigger expression of Nebbiolo and the 2007 vintage offers thicker texture and more richness compared to most other years.See detailed press review
