Tasting Notes and Scores
This is a dense and powerful Barolo with so much fruit and tannin tension yet there is a balance and refinement with dried berries, flowers and mineral character. Full body, with chewy tannins and a long finish. Muscular wine for Azelia. Best ever from this vineyard? Try after 2017.
The 2010 Barolo Margheria comes across as quite compact at this stage but then again, it is a young Serralunga Barolo. Iron, graphite, smoke and crushed rocks seem to resonate off a core of expressive dark fruit in a muscular, implosive Barolo endowed with tremendous depth and intensity. With time in the glass the wine's inner perfume and sweetness begin to emerge, accompanied by expressive floral and savory notes that add tons of pure appeal. The 2010 is going to require considerable patience, but there is a lot to look forward to. Layers of chalk and limestone inflected minerality support to the building finish. The Margheria is aged entirely in cask, which among other things, means the malolactic fermentation is done the spring after harvest, later than the other Azelia's Barolos.
