Margheria Barolo 2014 Azelia di Luige Scavino
|Brand||Azelia di Luige Scavino|
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.

Serious tannin structure in this exceptionally closed 2014 Barolo. This needs several more years in the bottle for the fruit to open up, but there's some real depth here. Better from 2020.
