  • 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...

    The 2013 Barolo Margheria shows its typically high-toned, aromatic profile. Scents of lavender, sage, mint, leather and earthiness meld into a core of dark stone fruits. Veins of bright acidity and salinity give the flavors an extra kick of brightness on the finish. The relatively high-altitude of this site and the limestone-rich soils yield a brilliant, salivating Barolo. The Margheria was aged in cask.

    The cherry and plum flavors are buried in a dense matrix of tannins, shaded by tobacco, leather, tar and iron notes. Linear and persistent on the finish, if less expressive at this stage than its peers.

    August 2017

    This vineyard is located in Serralunga d'Alba, where the soils are rich with clay and limestone. Vines are 50 years old, on average. The 2013 Barolo Margheria is a terrific wine with broad shoulders and a fully loaded, exuberant personality. The bouquet is dark and gristly in places with aromas of dark cherry followed by smoked bacon fat and cured tobacco. These are classic characteristics of this vineyard site, and they come through with absolute clarity in this classic vintage. There is a pronounced mineral note of campfire ash and pencil shaving as well.

    July 2017

    Extremely rich and decadent now with plum and smoky aromas that follow through to a full body, round and soft tannins and a savory finish. Drink now or hold.
