Uncovering a Hidden Gem At Caveau Bar

Looking for a good glass of a vintage wine? Look no further. Introducing the 1999 Azelia Barolo San Rocco, which is available at Caveau this October. Be blown away with its beautiful notes of black cherries, liquorice and spice, accompanied with a fine balance of acidity and slightly sweet tannin on the palate, and the long lasting finish that runs through this Barolo.

Azienda Agricola Azelia produces wines which pays respect to their roots and tradition. Made from old vines, up to 55 years of age, which experiences low yields during the harvest, coupled with a keen attention to detail in ensuring the uniform ripening of the grapes, it is no wonder that the resulting quality of the wine is impeccable.
