93+ Points
From the great Margheria cru, this Barolo is built to last. Slighter deeper intensity and colour from the clay soils, with developing undercurrents of the earthy and 'umami' stuff that rounds out Barolo's floral nature so beautifully. Impressive now it is still only a glimpse at what it will be, so keep this one a few more years in the cellar...but whatever you do, don't miss out.

Its Origins

Alongside Massolino the barolos from Azelia are eye-watering bargains in the fine wine world. Anyone with a love of the nebbiolo grape should search out these under-valued Barolos for they are some of the most age- worthy wines in the world. In 1920 Cavalier Lorenzo Scavino began to vinify part of the grapes produced in the family's vineyards, a small rural reality in the heart of the Langhe region, in Castiglione Falletto. His son Alfonso started enthusiastically to bottle the wine produced and thanks to Luigi's father, Lorenzo, with perseverance and willpower, the wines were for the first time exported. The Azienda Agricola Azelia, in the centre of the area of Barolo production, is nowadays composed of 16 hectares and it produces, on average, 80,000 bottles per year. Luigi is supported by his wife Lorella and his son Lorenzo, who bears the name of his grandfather and who represents the fifth generation of wine producers. The family management is essential as it permits an extreme precision in every step of the production.

What The Critics Say

93/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2012 Barolo Margheria is a bit deeper and richer than the Bricco Fiasco. Savory herbs, dried flowers, iron and minerals are some of the signatures. This is an especially feral, powerful Barolo for the vintage, with real intensity and nuance to round out its powerful personality. The tannins are firm and dusty, but there is more than enough fruit to balance things out. The Margheria was aged entirely in cask." Drink 2020 - 2032
