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. Drinking window: 2022 - 2037

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.
Wine Enthusiast 94
Enticing aromas of blue flower, ripe berry, leather and a hint of baking spice meld together. The juicy, delicious palate offers ripe black cherry, crushed raspberry, clove and ground pepper. Firm, velvety tannins support the succulent fruit.
James Suckling 94
Lots of fresh mushroom, plum and cedar aromas follow through to a full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Tight and structured. Needs three years to open.
