Azelia Barolo 2013
Established in 1920 by patriarch Lorenzo Scavino, Azelia is located in the commune of Castiglione Falletto. This small town is a special and unique location, where the two soils types of Barolo are stratified together, lending both power and elegance to the wines. In 1967, Alfonso Scavino (son of Lorenzo) took the reins of the estate and bottled the first wines under the Azelia name. Today, Alfonso’s son, Luigi and grandson, Lorenzo are the 3rd and 4th generations in charge of this family estate. To this day, the father and son team continue to apply what they learned from previous generations, making wines that respect the traditions of their forefathers, while utilizing modern techniques to continually improve their quality year-after-year.
