Antonio Galloni Vinous
The 2012 Barolo San Rocco shows the pedigree of this great site. The richest and deepest of the Azelia 2012s, the San Rocco is full of intrigue. Dark cherry, plum, sage, menthol, licorice and rosemary are all vivid and beautifully delineated throughout. Although the 2012 doesn't quite have the density that is typical of this wine, there is a lot going on in the glass.

Wine Spectator
Licorice and sweet spice notes grace the cherry and tar flavors in this intense and compact red. All the components are well-proportioned, but this needs time to come together. Offers a classic Serralunga profile.

Winery Information
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 and Lorella Scavino and their son, Lorenzo are the current winemakers, producing excellent Nebbiolo wines from Top Barolo Crus - Castiglione Falletto & Serralunga d'Alba, along with Dolcetto from the best-kept single vineyard in Montelupo Albese, outside the area of Barolo. 
The style is defined by its elegance with not overly powerful structure and the quality is impressively consistent and improving by the contribution of modern techniques. Great respect & care is given to the vineyard work. Wine is made of old vines which produce very few grapes and the low yields are further reduced through the green harvest, indispensable to select fruits, to have a uniform ripening and an impeccable quality.

Wine Note
100% Nebbiolo varietal, sourced from Serralunga d'Alba. On average of 55 year old vines and matured 24 months in small barrels. 
Fleshy, extremely focused. Here Serralunga is present with signs of licorice, spices and dark fruits. Cherry, currant and blueberry melt harmoniously together. Velvety and sweetly ripe, with splendidly integrated tannins. San Rocco gives an impression of great power, austerity, with an incredible aging potential. Pure complexity. A strong character. Monumental.

Pairing
Pair with roasted game dish (herb-crusted roast lamb rack), braised beef and truffle.
