From the heart of Serralunga d'Alba, with all its complexity. Intense aromas, black fruits, licorice and spices in the typical Serralunga style. Energetic. The tannins frame the structure giving density and deepness to the wine. Conclusion with a persistent sapidity. Mineral, earthy, salty. Impressive.

Azelia makes three wines with fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, including San Rocco, Cerretta and this wine. There is also a Riserva from Bricco Voghera. The 2019 Barolo Margheria comes from a southwest facing slope opposite the Perno Vineyard. The site has very poor soils with white clay, and the vines (aged 65 years old on average) are forced to push their roots very deep as a result. This wine has a tight and very firm personality with dark fruit, rusty nail, dusty mineral and tight structure. Those rusty mineral aromas give it away as Serralunga d'Alba. This is an age-worthy wine, with 5,900 bottles released.

A relatively open (for the vintage) red marked by bright cherry, raspberry, floral and cut hay flavors. Balanced and more on the elegant side, despite a firm grip of tannins on the finish. Best from 2026 through 2042. 600 cases made, 180 cases imported.

The 2019 Barolo Margheria is laced with sage, menthol, licorice, underbrush, dried herbs and sage. This sinewy Serralunga Barolo has good depth, although it is on the lighter side structurally for this cru. Nevertheless, the wine's persistence makes up for that to some degree.
