Product Overview

The 2015 Azelia Barolo San Rocco is sourced from 61-year-old vines from the winery's holdings in the San Rocco vineyard of Serralunga d'Alba. This fleshy and extremely focused wine offers notes of licorice, spices, and dark fruits such as cherry, currant, and blueberry melting harmoniously together. Velvety and sweetly ripe with splendidly integrated tannins, San Rocco gives an impression of great power, austerity, with an incredible aging potential.

Varietal Composition: 100% Nebbiolo
Appellation: Barolo DOCG
Vineyard Designation: San Rocco
Aging: 24 months in barriques
Farming Practices: Practicing Organic
Production: 550 cases

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"There is a lot of fruit ripeness in the 2015 Barolo San Rocco, with blackberry, wild berry, plush softness, spice and licorice. The fruit is nicely balanced and shows bright intensity. Located in Serralunga d'Alba, San Rocco was purchased by Luigi Scavino's father in the 1990s. The vines are 65 years old today. Some 6,600 bottles of this vintage were made." -ML, 6/28/19

93+ Points - Vinous
"The 2015 Barolo San Rocco is the most potent and structured of the Azelia Barolos. Swaths of tannin enshroud this tightly wound, classically austere Barolo. Readers should plan on cellaring the 2015 for at least a few years. This is one of the more reticent young Barolos I have tasted at Azelia." -AG, Feb/2019

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This has an initially shy nose that eventually gives up delicate aromas suggesting French oak, mocha, exotic spice and a floral note. The assertive palate offers unripe sour cherry, blood orange and licorice alongside tightly knit, close-grained tannins." -KO, 12/1/19

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Cherry, menthol, tar and iron flavors emerge in this powerful red. Dense, muscular tannins guard the finish, which plays out with a grassy, minerally expression. Best from 2023 through 2038. 533 cases made, 200 cases imported." -BS, 2020
