From the great Margheria Cru, this Barolo is built to last. Slighter fuller intensity, structure and colour come from the clay soils, with this vineyard's olive and umami undercurrent deepening the Nebbiolo grape's floral nature so beautifully. Impressive now it is still only a glimpse at what it will be, so keep this in cellar at least a little while. Beautiful!

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

95/100 Parker's Wine Advocate, Monica Larner

"You can taste the softness and richness of the warm vintage in the 2015 Barolo Margheria. The wine offers dark fruit flavors and lots of rich, plump fruit at the back. This is a softly textured wine that can also be consumed in the near or medium term. This single-vineyard Barolo from Serralunga d'Alba ages in botti grandi for 36 months. The vines are 60 years old, and the soils are rich with limestone clay. Some 6,200 bottles were made. -- Luigi Scavino and his family own vineyards in both Castiglione Falletto (Bricco Fiasco with sandy soils) and Serralunga d'Alba (Margheria, San Rocco and Bricco Voghera for the Riserva)." Drink 2020 - 2040

94/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2015 Barolo Margheria shows the textural breadth of Serralunga in its compelling interplay of succulent, layered fruit and bright, soil-driven tones, with mineral inflections that add layers of complexity. Sage, tobacco, cedar, rose petal, menthol, anise and dried flowers fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. All the elements are nicely balanced. In 2015 the Margheria is all class." Drink 2023 - 2041

16.5/20 JancisRobinson.com, Walter Speller

"Serralunga d’Alba. Tasted blind. Deep ruby with orange tinges. Closed on the nose and not showing a lot of fruit right now. It is quite the opposite on the palate with luscious, very ripe fruit with shimmering, sour cherry coming through. Bags of powdery tannins on a long, almost rich finish. (WS)." Drink 2019 - 2028
