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 Margheria was born in 2004 when it was decided to refine this Cru in large barrels. Complex aromas, black fruits, licorice and spices in the typical Serralunga style. An energetic wine with tannins that give density and depth to the wine. Mineral, and sapid but above all exceptional from a qualitative point of view.
Red meats, risotto and aged cheeses are ideal as a pairing.

Color

Sontuosa livrea granato intenso brillante.

Smell

Aristocratico corredo olfattivo dove si percepiscono raffinate tonalità di resina, frutti di bosco pestati, viola intensa terragna intarsiata da venature balsamiche e profonde di aghi di pino che virano a soffi minerali quasi ematici.

Taste

Chiude composto con coriandolo e anice stellato. Integrità ed energia al palato dove i tannini flessuosi e maturi controllano la potente falcata acido-sapida. Lunga scia salina costellata dall'umami tattile del gusto. Interminabile.

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.
