    Le Barolo 2013 de la maison Azelia provient de Castiglione Falletto et Serralunga d'Alba. Il s'ouvre sur de jolis arômes de cerise et de fraise tissés avec des épices, de la réglisse et des notes minérales. Ce Barolo est joliment équilibré, bien structuré et conserve sa fraîcheur tout au lonf de  safinale persistante. Trad. ad lib.
