  • 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...

    - #40 - Top 100 Wines of 2017 -

    May 2017

    The San Rocco seems to be the most complete wine from Luigi Scavino in this vintage. San Rocco is a simply gorgeous wine, which displays plenty of its Serralunga charm, as it walks a fine line between style and elegance. Aromas of dark cherries, strawberries are woven together with light spices, mint and floral notes which burst from the glass. This beautifully structured Barolo is full and polished and its outstanding overall balance all make the San Rocco extremely appealing in its youth, nonetheless it also possesses the characteristics indicating it will age gracefully for years to come.

    Another highlight in this range, the 2013 Barolo San Rocco is utterly beguiling. The bouquet alone is striking, but it is the wine's total balance that is most appealing today. Tasted next to the Margheria, the San Rocco is deeper, darker and more overtly powerful, with a greater sense of Serralunga tannic clout. Dark cherry, tobacco, menthol, licorice and sweet spices give the San Rocco much of its exotic personality. The San Rocco was aged in French oak barrels, with about 10% new wood.

    For the San Rocco, Azelia uses small, lightly toasted French oak barrels, only 10% new, to stabilise the colour and give the wine the gentle micro-oxidation they feel it needs. It is gorgeously scented with mint, sweet baking spice, cocoa and hints of smoke. There's plenty of depth and richness on the palate, with nutmeg and wild cherry at the core, the tannins clamped down waiting to unfold. There is no lack of polish here.

    Azelia has hit it out of the ballpark with the three single-vineyard Barolos presented. The 2013 Barolo San Rocco is a rich and penetrating wine that keeps a sharp focus on balance and harmony all the while. This vineyard is located in Serralunga d'Alba, and the vines were planted in the early 1990s. The bouquet is robust and forthcoming with dark fruit, spice and cured leather. But ethereal notes of smoke, tar and licorice also lift delicately from the bouquet. You get both power and elegance with this cellar-worthy wine.
