Reviews
• Robert Parker: 89 Unlike many of its peers, the Azelia 2018 Langhe Nebbiolo is aged only in steel, resulting in a soft, fresh and slightly downplayed expression of the grape. The wine is characterized by its simplicity and a bouquet that hits all the basics but doesn't attempt to offer any special intensity or precision. It's just Nebbiolo, the kind of bright and cheerful wine to pair with a cheese platter and crackers. About 15,200 bottles were produced.
• Wine Spectator: 90 Perfumed, displaying rose, cherry and strawberry flavors, with elements of tar and underbrush. The finish is a bit gruff, but overall this is balanced and satisfying. Drink now through 2025. 1,300 cases made, 450 cases imported. — BS
