Azelia's "normale" Barolo is a blend of fruit from Castiglione and Serralunga. Although Azelia is often associated with a more modern style, this wine actually undergoes an extensive maceration (+50 days!) and is aged entirely in large casks rather than barriques. The result is a wine of remarkable depth and purity for the price point.

Professional Reviews

Decanter

D 92
"From 5.5 hectares in Castiglione Falletto, including a selection from Bricco Voghera – from which Luigi and Lorenzo Scavino usually pick the grapes for their Riserva. Here is a Barolo full of details: intense sweet violet and cinnamon aromas with smoky minerality, pomegranate and red currants. The freshness on the nose is allied to a lot of sucrosity on the palate, with lifted acidity and firm, dusty and even slightly rustic tannins. Good concentration for a village Barolo, and one of the greatest price-quality ratios."
