2018 Azelia Ceretta 750Ml BottleRegular price $321.00
From a 2.5ha plot purchased 30 years ago by the Scavino family. Vines planted were produced by grafting a selection of the very best old vines from the Bricco Fiasco, Luigi had always wanted to produce Barolo from this site, owing to its exceptional character and impeccable vines, but only chose to do so after 2016 when the vines were deemed sufficiently mature. SSW exposure, 355 metres above sea level. Aged 30 months in large casks.
"Rather exotic nose, offering earthy, ripe strawberries, together with fruity spice, smoked mackerel and wild, foresty notes. Medium-to full-bodied with a compact palate of complex flavors and lightly firm tannins... Really good for the vintage. Best from 2024." 95pts - James Suckling
"The Azelia 2018 Barolo Cerretta is a bold and powerful expression with dark fruit, grilled herb and ferrous notes of rusty iron that stand out strong in this hot vintage. The wine tastes firm and almost salty on the palate with long, polished tannins. This bottle is a shiny gem in this estate portfolio." 95pts - Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
