Luigi Scavino Azelia Barolo 2016

Piedmont, ItalyMixing the calcareous soil of Castiglione Falletto with the heavier clay soils of Serralunga d’Alba is the magic behind this beautiful wine. In all, six plots of vines from two villages, with vines verging on 50 years of age is the story behind fruit purity in this wine. The nose is exquisite with clean, pure cherries and black licorice. The tannins are dense but almost chalky, supporting a fruity, floral, cherry, licorice, mineral palate that lasts and lasts. Another impressive 2016 Barolo that is going to age for a long time. A dense, soft, modern Barolo with impressive styling after ageing 24 months in 25 to 50HL oak barrels of Slavonian, French and Austrian origin.Tasted: 31 October 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 62.99 BCLS BC 75.49 select private retailers Producer: Azelia di Scavino Luigi, Az Agr.Distributors: Trialto Wine Group
