  • 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...

    Wonderful aromas of spices and berries. Chili powder with plums. Chinese spices. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and delicious fruit. Pretty tannin and fruit tension.

    The classic Barolo, which is sourced from vineyards primarily in Serralunga, along with some from Castiglione Falletto is wonderful entry into Azelia’s range of fabulous wines in this vintage. It begins with attractive aromas of dried cherries and strawberries woven together with fresh cut floral, eucalyptus and hints of crushed stones all coming together in this refined Barolo. On the palate this is medium to full-bodied and displays a lovely polished texture. This displays wonderful balance from start to finish, where flavors of red fruits continue to linger on and on. This is a Barolo which will be accessible sooner than later. (Best 2017-2026)

    Antonio Galloni, March 2016

    Azelia's 2012 Barolo is fresh, floral and nicely lifted in the glass. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, spices, mint and rose petal lift from the glass in the 2012 Barolo. An excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years, Azelia's straight Barolo is all about balance and understated harmony. The style is gracious, perfumed and weightless, with pretty saline notes that give the wine its sense of proportion. This is one of the best straight 2012 Barolos I tasted. Fruit sources are 70% Serralunga and 30% Castiglione Falletto. The 2012 spent two and a half years in cask. Hail was an issue in Bricco Voghera, so Azelia did not produce a Riserva. All the best fruit went into the straight Barolo.

    Kerin O'Keefe, October 2016

    Underbrush, toasted hazelnut, licorice and wild berry aromas lead the nose. The straightforward palate shows raw red cherry, orange peel and star anise alongside firm but refined tannins.
