2010 Barolo Margheria Azelia

2010 was a benchmark vintage for Barolo, with wines of real quality across the board. Azelia’s were no exception, described by Galloni as "some of the very finest wines I have ever tasted here". Brilliant single-vineyard Barolo. These 2010 single-vineyard releases from Azelia may be their best ever. The Margheria shows "tremendous depth and intensity". Such was the popularity on release that good examples of 2010 Barolo are becoming hard to find, and so bearing in mind Galloni's comment that "Readers looking for a first-rate Barolo producer whose pricing has remained very fair need look no further than the wines of Azelia", we are delighted to offer these wines.

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. Drink: 2016 - 2035
