AZELIA AZELIA - Barolo Margheria - 2014

AZELIA Barolo Margheria 2014

See the wine detail page

92 Points

Here is a darker and more robust wine from Serralunga d'Alba where soils are heavier. They also show a greater presence of clay and limestone. The 2014 Barolo Margheria is made with fruit from 50-year-old vines and shows compact and dense aromatic intensity as a result. The bouquet is constructed on top of thick layers of dark fruit, dried cherry, balsam herb and crushed mineral. The 2014 mouthfeel, however, veers toward the lean and compact side of the Barolo spectrum.
