Wine Spectator
The rich, polished profile is generous, with vibrant cherry, plum, vanilla and tobacco flavors.

Antonio Galloni
Azelia's 2013 Barolo is a gorgeous, entry-level offering. Orange peel, cinnamon, rose water, herbs, sweet red berries and mint give the 2013 its distinctive, lifted personality. Silky and gracious, the 2013 is super-expressive today. The style is very much built on mid-weight structure and aromatics. This is a terrific introduction to the year.

Wine Note
Azelia's 2012 Barolo is fresh, floral and nicely lifted in the glass. Crushed flowers, sweet red cherries, spices, mint and rose petal lift from the glass in the 2012 Barolo. An excellent choice for drinking over the next handful of years, Azelia's straight Barolo is all about balance and understated harmony. The style is gracious, perfumed and weightless, with pretty saline notes that give the wine its sense of proportion. This is one of the best straight 2012 Barolos I tasted. Fruit sources are 70% Serralunga and 30% Castiglione Falletto. The 2012 spent two and a half years in cask. Hail was an issue in Bricco Voghera, so Azelia did not produce a Riserva. All the best fruit went into the straight Barolo.

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.

Pairing

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