A cuirassier. Fleshy, extremely focused. Here Serralunga is present with signs of licorice, spices and dark fruits. Cherry, currant and blueberry melt harmoniously together. Velvety and sweetly ripe, with splendidly integrated tannins. San Rocco gives an impression of great power, austerity, with an incredible aging potential. Pure complexity. A strong character. Monumental.

Azelia has hit it out of the ballpark with the three single-vineyard Barolos presented. The 2013 Barolo San Rocco is a rich and penetrating wine that keeps a sharp focus on balance and harmony all the while. This vineyard is located in Serralunga d'Alba, and the vines were planted in the early 1990s. The bouquet is robust and forthcoming with dark fruit, spice and cured leather. But ethereal notes of smoke, tar and licorice also lift delicately from the bouquet. You get both power and elegance with this cellar-worthy wine.

Harmonious and tightly wound, offering cherry, licorice, eucalyptus and spice aromas and flavors meshed with refined tannins. Remains balanced and long, with sweet fruit offsetting the gum-coating tannins. Best from 2019 through 2033. 566 cases made.

This opens with aromas of baking spice, leather and dark berry. The solid, concentrated palate offers ripe black cherry, mocha and vanilla alongside assertive tannins. Drink after 2023.
