Loved it!!! Full bodied, had it with a very seasoned meal and it came through in taste and smell. Spicy and hints of fruit.

The 1998 Barolo San Rocco's dark plum/garnet color is followed by a gorgeously fragrant perfume of dried Provençal herbs, smoke, tar, black cherry liqueur, cedar, and soy. Ripe, opulently-textured, full-bodied flavors caress the palate with no hard edges. This hedonistic Nebbiolo fruit bomb possesses plenty of complexity. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.

Medium red. Rich aromas of strawberry, underbrush and truffle. Silky on entry, then very ripe and sweet, even a bit decadent, in the middle palate. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and notes of oak char and smoke.

Very concentrated and complex on the nose with blackberry, dark chocolate and toasted oak aromas. Full-bodied and very ripe, with loads of fruit and a long, caressing finish. A powerful and rich wine. Builds on the palate. Best after 2009.

Very ripe plum skin, with hints of spices and flavors. full-bodied, with very polished tannins and a long, fruity and caressing finish. Needs time to develop. Best after 2005.

The 1997 Barolo San Rocco possesses a phenomenal perfume of tobacco, leather, cedar, fruitcake, and cherry liqueur. Tar and rose petals (classic scents of ripe Nebbiolo) also emerges. Once past the terrific aromatics, the wine is full-bodied, rich, and supple, with an expansive texture, sweet tannin, low acidity, and gobs of fat as well as extract. This alluring Barolo is best drunk over the next 12-15 years.

Azelia’s best-known wine may be the Bricco Fiasco, but in 2001 as in other recent vintages I find the San Rocco even more compelling. It is more intense and masculine in its expression of Serralunga terroir, with a complex nose of smoke, scorched earth, minerals and spices. As it sits in the glass the wine opens, gradually revealing notes of rich dense dark fruit with plenty of structure, finishing with broad yet fine tannins and tremendous overall balance. It is an immensely satisfying modern-styled Barolo. Anticipated maturity: 2009–2016.

A powerful and rich wine. Builds on the palate. Best after 2009. 930 cases ... Wine Spectator. A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Azelia Barolo San Rocco 1500ml
