Azelia Barolo San Rocco 2014

Only 52 units available online.
Product description

This wine offers licorice, spices, cherry, currant and blueberry aromas. It is fleshy, velvety and ripe on the palate, with splendidly integrated tannins. A wine with great power, austerity and aging potential.

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Barolo San Rocco is very expressive of the Serralunga d'Alba township, which always shows darker and denser fruit characteristics than Barolo's other main growing areas. This wine is aged in barrique for two years, of which only 10% is new oak. Your senses are treated to attractive layers of dark fruit, spice, wet earth and grilled herb. On average, the vines are 60 years old and show extra density and concentration. It follows that the mouthfeel is proportionally denser and more structured as well.

Quite a concentrated wine for this challenging vintage. It shows some richness and grace. The tannins are already beautifully integrated. There's an attractive terracotta character here and notes of dried flowers and red cherries.
