Lot #449. Azelia di Luigi Scavino Barolo San Rocco 2006

Description: Consists of 3 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 95 AG.
"The 2006 Barolo San Rocco is sensual and enveloping. It’s hard to know where to start with the San Rocco, as fruit, acidity and structure are all beautifully integrated and refined. Still incredibly young, the wine will require a bit of patience, but the purity of the fruit is impossible to miss even at this early stage. The finish alone is eternal . . . . Proprietor Luigi Scavino doesn’t get anywhere near the attention he deserves, but make no mistake about it, his top Barolos play in the same league with Piedmont’s elite bottlings. The Barolos see malolactic fermentation and aging in French oak barriques, although the Margheria is aged in medium-size French oak barrels." Wine Advocate #187, Feb 2010
Provenance: The Jupiter Cellar
Notes: 1 Lightly marked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $325
