This classic Barolo is silky and bright. Its in the Azelia style – fresh, vibrant and age-worthy but with moderate and fine tannins (nothing scary!). The result here is perfect drink-younger example of the region, delicate but concentrated with that unmistakable red fruit, mineral complexity and floral charm. Age it if you want or, at this price, just crack it next casserole night.

Overview

Grape

Nebbiolo

Its Origins

Alongside Massolino the barolos from Azelia are eye-watering bargains in the fine wine world. Anyone with a love of the nebbiolo grape should search out these under-valued Barolos for they are some of the most age- worthy wines in the world. In 1920 Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino began to vinify part of the grapes produced in the family's vineyards, a small rural reality in the heart of the Langhe region, in Castiglione Falletto. His son Alfonso started enthusiastically to bottle the wine produced and thanks to Luigi's father, Lorenzo, with perseverance and willpower, the wines were for the first time exported. The Azienda Agricola Azelia, in the centre of the area of Barolo production, is nowadays composed of 16 hectares and it produces, on average, 80,000 bottles per year. Luigi is supported by his wife Lorella and his son Lorenzo, who bears the name of his grandfather and who represents the fifth generation of wine producers. The family management is essential as it permits an extreme precision in every step of the production.

What The Critics Say

89/100 Antonio Galloni

"Azelia's 2014 Barolo is understated, gracious and very pretty. Sweet tobacco, dried cherry, mint and crushed flowers all lift from the glass. Grippy, young Nebbiolo tannins extend the midpalate and finish. The cut and nervous energy of the year are very much on display." Drink 2019 - 2026
