The Margheria presents with Complex aromas consisting of black fruits, licorice and spices in the typical Serralunga style. Margheria widely expresses the strong and austere character of this town. The wine is energetic and the tannins frame the structure giving density and deepness to the wine. Hints of minerality, earthiness and salt contrinute to the overall impressive nature of this wine.

"The 2010 Barolo Margheria comes across as quite compact at this stage but then again, it is a young Serralunga Barolo. Iron, graphite, smoke and crushed rocks seem to resonate off a core of expressive dark fruit in a muscular, implosive Barolo endowed with tremendous depth and intensity. With time in the glass the wine's inner perfume and sweetness begin to emerge, accompanied by expressive floral and savory notes that add tons of pure appeal. The 2010 is going to require considerable patience, but there is a lot to look forward to. Layers of chalk and limestone inflected minerality support to the building finish. The Margheria is aged entirely in cask, which among other things, means the malolactic fermentation is done the spring after harvest, later than the other Azelia's Barolos."
