About professional Ratings
Azienda Agricola Azelia is located within the commune of Castiglione Falletto, a small town in the heart of the area where Barolo is made. It was established in 1920 by Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino, great-grandfather of the present owner Luigi Scavino, and at the beginning it was a small farm. Luigi is now supported by his wife Lorella and by his son Lorenzo, named after Luigi’s father, and who represents the fifth generation of wine producers. Luigi continues to apply what he learnt from his father, together with modern techniques and respect for tradition and he exclusively vinifies the grapes from his estate vineyards.
92 Points Wine Advocate ... The 2014 Barolo Bricco Fiasco offers a carefully balanced and elegant bouquet that is partially based on vibrant primary fruit and partially based on the more ethereal varietal notes you get from Nebbiolo. These aromas recall powdered liquorice and balsam herb. Vines in the Fiasco vineyard were planted in the 1940s, and the Fiasco site in Castiglione Falletto has a greater component of sand, which helps to establish those fine fruity and floral aromas. Simply delicious!
