  • 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...

    Very decadent and rich with dried meat, ripe berry and red wood aromas. Full body, chewy tannins, fresh acidity and a flavorful finish. This is tight and impressive. Dusty texture. Try in 2020 to give it time to develop in the bottle. Strength in finesse.

    The 'Bricco Fiasco' is an absolutely sensational Barolo from Azelia in this vintage. This instantly bursts open with gorgeous aromas of ripe cherries and dark berries woven together with licorice, mint, mineral, sweet spices and a beautiful dried floral character. It continues to impress with its fantastic structure along with wonderful overall balance and precision. Everything is beautifully wrapped up with delicious red fruits, which leave a long lasting impression. Although this is lovely today, I only expect it to continue to evolve for many years to come. (Best 2018-2031)

    Antonio Galloni, March 2016

    The 2012 Barolo Bricco Fiasco is wonderfully lifted and precise in the glass, qualities that aren't typical of this renowned site in Castiglione Falletto. Crushed rose petals, anise, mint and red cherry all meld together. In 2012, the Bricco Fiasco is decidedly feminine and gracious, with striking aromatics but less of the muscle than is often present. The 2012 should drink well with minimal cellaring. Although not especially representative of its origins, the 2012 is a very pretty wine in its own right.
