  • About this winery

    Azelia is still something of a Barolo lover's secret. Though the estate is not a high-profile one, proprietor Luigi Scavino is cousin of Enrico Scavino of the renowned Paolo Scavino estate, and shares ownership of the famed Fiasco hill in Castiglione Falletto with him. 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...

    Antonio Galloni, March 2016

    The 2012 Barolo San Rocco shows the pedigree of this great site. The richest and deepest of the Azelia 2012s, the San Rocco is full of intrigue. Dark cherry, plum, sage, menthol, licorice and rosemary are all vivid and beautifully delineated throughout. Although the 2012 doesn't quite have the density that is typical of this wine, there is a lot going on in the glass.

    Kerin O'Keefe, October 2016

    Enticing aromas of blue flower, ripe berry, leather and a hint of baking spice meld together. The juicy, delicious palate offers ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, clove and ground pepper. Firm, velvety tannins support the succulent fruit.

    Lots of fresh mushroom, plum and cedar aromas follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Needs three years to open. Try in 2019.

    July 2016

    The 2012 San Rocco is a wonderfully made Barolo which offers aromas dried cherries and raspberries woven together with dried violets, eucalyptus, licorice, dried herbs and fresh minerals, which all take shape as this slowly unwinds in the glass. On the palate this shows demonstrates remarkable overall structure, balance and focus and is supported by beautiful firm, yet well polished tannins that lead into the long chewy finish. The San Rocco shows the potential to age gracefully for years to come and will ultimately be best with just a few more years of bottle age. (Best 2018-2029)
