About this Wine

From the estate youngest vines, 20 years on average, an approach to Barolo with instantaneous drinkability. 

92+ points! "In some respects, I prefer the way the entry level Nebbiolo presents over its cru big brothers and sisters. It’s all about the fruit, without as much winemaking scaffolding. Well, surely this is a Langhe Neb for Pinot drinkers. It’s bright and red fruited, perfumed with aniseed and sweet new leather, almost comes over a bit like that stuff you pop in your hand using a small spoon when you pay the bill at an Indian restaurant, to freshen your breath, after the inevitable over indulgence. Did we really need those extra garlic naan to mop up the sauce? Anyway, medium-bodied, at most, crisp and crunchy, light in chalky tannin, frisky in freshness, with a succulent and pretty red fruited finish of fine length. Lovely drink here." Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au.

About the Winery

The winery was established in 1920 by Lorenzo Scavino, currently the estate is run by the 3rd and 4th generations. It is based in the town of Castiglione Falletto where the family farms 16 hectares of vines in the Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d'Alba and surrounding areas.

Azelia is completely quality focused - all operations are done by hand and organic farming principles are followed (cover crops in the rows, minimal use copper and sulphur treatments only and the soil is not tilled).

 "The transformation at Azelia over the last handful of years has been nothing short of extraordinary. That's not to say the wines weren't compelling before. They were, and they also aged well. But recent vintages have really gone to another level. Since 2014, Luigi Scavino and his son, Lorenzo, have taken these wines into a direction of extreme finesse. The Barolos now see 55-60 days on the skins, with submerged cap fermentation. The Scavinos certainly timed their 100th anniversary brilliantly. These wines are spectacular." Antonio Galloni, vinous.com
