Well, surely this is a Langhe Neb for Pinot drinkers... Lovely drink here.
About The Wine
This is a pure, juicy expression of Nebbiolo from a top Piemontese producer.
This unoaked Langhe Nebbiolo is crafted from fruit across various in both Castiglione Falletto and Serralunga d’Alba.
It's the essence of Nebbiolo; light, crunchy, and frisky to drink with a faint trail of nippy Nebbiolo tannin through the finish.
Great drinking in its youth and the ability to age and improve for a few years in bottle.
Lorenzo Scavino established Azelia in 1920 in the commune of Castiglione Falletto.
The winery and vineyards have been passed down through the family, from Lorenzo to his son Alfonso in 1967, then to his son Luigi and now his son Lorenzo. Through five generations, the quality of this estate has remained in the top echelon of Piemontese growers/producers.
The wines are traditional in style and showcase special sites across Castiglione Falletto as well as San Rocco, Margheria, Bricco Voghera and Cerretta in Serralunga d’Alba.
"Azelia, can hold their own with the very best of the region. The wines combine power and elegance with a level of virtuosity matched by few in the region…" - The Wine Advocate
