Mid ruby with narrow orange rim. Earthier and a little more complex than Margheria, more breed and finesse on the nose. Iron and orange. The most backward, with orange peel and cherry on the palate and firm but polished tannins. Very pretty, this. (WS)
Antonio Galloni Vinous
The 2012 Barolo San Rocco shows the pedigree of this great site. The richest and deepest of the Azelia 2012s, the San Rocco is full of intrigue. Dark cherry, plum, sage, menthol, licorice and rosemary are all vivid and beautifully delineated throughout. Although the 2012 doesn't quite have the density that is typical of this wine, there is a lot going on in the glass.
