Description

Details of wine

The Azelia farm is located in the center of the Barolo production area. The management is familiar and this allows you to follow every step of the production in a maniacal way. The production is about 80,000 bottles per year, obtained from ancient vineyards with low yield but impeccable quality.
Barolo 2015 has an impeccable balance. Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d'Alba combine here in a superlative way. Aromaticity and finesse with power and body at the same time. Sweet nose, with hints of cherry, black currant and licorice. Fruity tannins. The wine is aged for two years in large barrels. Seasoned cheeses and red meat dishes are excellent combinations.

Color

Rosso rubino intenso.

Smell

Fine e poliedrico nelle tonalità boschive che ricordano la viola e la rosa di bosco, foglie secche, alloro, bacche di rovo, resina, aghi di mugo e bastoncino di liquirizia.

Taste

Aristocratico l'incedere gustativo, di buon equilibrio, sugellato da tannini muscolosi e lunga persistenza sapido-speziata. Tutto è pronto per un successivo assaggio.

Name: Azelia Luigi Scavino
Start-up year: 1920
Cultivated hectares: 16
Winemaker name: Luigi Scavino, Lorenzo Scavino
Address: Via Alba Barolo, 143 - Castiglione Falletto (CN)
Web Site: www.azelia.it

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. Great care is given to the work in the vineyards. Wine is made there from old vines which produce very few grapes. The low yields are further reduced through the green harvest, indispensable to select fruits, to have a uniform ripening and an impeccable quality. It is fundamental a scrupulous attention in the cellar where the respect for the tradition does not exclude the contribution of modern techniques.
