Azelia's classic 2016 Barolo shows a spicy or savory personality with accents of laurel leaf, eucalyptus and clove. Those are some of the high notes that hover over a core of dark fruit and dried blackberry. On the Nebbiolo scale, this wine takes us to a sultry side of the variety, with slightly more fruit weight, texture and pronounced black fruit.
If you are choosing your Barolo according to a possible pasta or meat pairing, this would be the meat wine. The purity of the fruit is just striking. Stated simply, this is a tremendous wine in its peer group.
