Azelia Barolo 2011
|Region||Italy, Piedmont, Barolo|
Wine SpectatorFleshy, with bright cherry, strawberry, wild herb, tar and tobacco flavors. Refined tannins grace the lingering finish, rendering this balanced and persistent. Best from 2018 through 2032. 2,000 cases made.
VinousAzelia's 2011 Barolo is a delicious entry-level offering. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice, kirsch and hard candy are all laced together in the glass. Flashy and succulent yet medium in body, the 2011 is an excellent choice for drinking over the next few years. There is a lot to like here. In 2011, Azelia did not make their RIserva; instead all of that fruit went into the straight Barolo bottling. Azelia's Barolo is a blend of fruit from six vineyards, approximately 70% Serralunga, 30% Castiglione Falletto fruit."
