The Azelia story began in 1920 when Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino decided to start making wine from his family’s vineyards in the prized Barolo heartland of Castiglione Falletto. Before long his son, Alfonso, began bottling the estate’s wine and shortly afterwards Azelia wines were exported for the first time. Today the estate is under the visionary leadership of Luigi Scavino who has worked tirelessly to transform Azelia into one of Barolo’s most sought-after producers.
To ensure the estate produces the best quality wines possible the vineyards are worked by hand and are farmed organically. In the winery Luigi insists on only using a light touch of oak with wines typically aged in large oak botti or used oak barrels. The single vineyard San Rocco Barolo is one of the estate’s finest which very small quantities produced each year from the 55 year old Nebbiolo vines in the 1.5 hectare Serralunga d'Alba vineyard.
On the nose there is an explosion of spice, liquorice and dark fruit which transform on the palate into intense black cherry, ripe plum, and dried Mediterranean herb flavours. The body is generous and full with firm tannins and a bright streak of freshness which bring balance to this powerful Barolo. The well-developed structure and long finish make this a great match for red meats, but it will also continue to develop and evolve in the cellar over the next decades.
