Reviews
• Robert Parker: 92 This is an enriched expression that shows the intensity and tightness of Nebbiolo with just a margin of the immediate softness and accessibility of this warm vintage. The Azelia 2015 Barolo comes together well on the palate with nice precision and focus. This is a blend of fruit from seven different small vineyards, with about one-third from Castiglione Falletto and the rest from Serralunga d'Alba (largely from the Cerretta and Broglio crus). Some 22,000 bottles were made.

Luigi Scavino and his family own vineyards in both Castiglione Falletto (Bricco Fiasco with sandy soils) and Serralunga d'Alba (Margheria, San Rocco and Bricco Voghera for the Riserva).
• JamesSuckling.com: 92 Aromas of coal dust and tar with a distinctly savory, stony edge and nuances of dried herb-wrapped cherries. The acidity is assertive and delivers a strong burst of red plum-pit flavor, ahead of chalky, smooth tannins. Nice balance. Try from 2022.
• Vinous / Antonio Galloni: 89 Azelia's 2015 Barolo is a very pretty, delicate wine built on aromatic lift and a light to medium-bodied sense of structure. Dried cherry, orange peel, mint and dried flowers all grace this expressive, nuanced Barolo. Azelia's straight Barolo is all about understatement, but it has enough depth to drink well for another decade or so. Vineyard sites are Solanotto, Altenaso, Broglio, Cerrati, Bricco Voghera and Cerretta.
