Cerretta is one of my favorite sites in Serralunga d'Alba because it consists of vines wrapped around a hilltop with various exposures. For that reason Cerretta wines can vary widely from producer to producer. The Azelia 2019 Barolo Cerretta has dark fruit and spice but the bouquet is mostly colored by flinty mineral tones smoke and pencil shaving. It offers terrific balance and also manages some softly perfumed notes of violet and blue flower that you don't get in the other wines. It sees 50 days of extended maceration and 30 months of aging in large oak casks. This is a very limited production of 3200 bottles. I tasted six Barolos from Luigi Scavino's Azelia: five from 2019 and a Riserva from 2013. The Riserva is a special wine that sees an outstanding five years of aging in oak casks and another five years in bottle before its commercial release. The vines range from 95 to 120 years old.
