AZELIA AZELIA - Barolo  - 2014

AZELIA Barolo 2014

See the wine detail page

90 Points

The 2014 Barolo is a blend of fruit from six smaller vineyard sites. About 30% of the fruit comes from Castiglione Falletto and the remaining 70% is from Serralunga d'Alba (mostly from the Cerretta and Broglio crus). Across the board, the average age of the vines is 45 years old. Even though the mouthfeel is a bit thinner in this vintage, the bouquet is pleasantly generous and ripe. Blackberry, cassis, tar and spice mesh together with seamless ease.
