(3/28/2021) "Margheria is an MGA in Serralunga, where Azelia occupies the higher westerly aspect. This makes the wine more austere in comparison to examples from other producers. Bright ruby in the glass, the scents are mostly focused on violets, with rhubarb and red berry notes. The palate is vibrant and mineral, with ripe, lavish tannins and bracing acidity. The structure and the almost-tart fruit are finely tailored. Outstanding now, but built for the long haul. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040."

(7/05/2021) "Smells like a bunch of fresh roses with strawberries and white mushrooms. It's full-bodied with a very fine, layered palate with lightly dusty tannins. It's extremely long and sophisticated. Drink in 2025."

Vinous, Antonio Galloni: 94 Points

(1/2021) "The 2017 Barolo Margheria is gorgeous. Open, perfumed aromatics are immediately alluring. On the palate, the 2017 is a dark, mysterious wine, with layers of flavor that continue to develop over time. Dark cherry, blood orange, spice, leather, iron and scorched earth add striking layers of nuance. The tannins are potent - we are in Serralunga after all - but the 2017 has so much to offer. It's a gorgeous Barolo to enjoy over the next two decades, maybe more. Drinking window: 2025 - 2042."

Wine Advocate: 93 Points

(6/17/2021) "The most structured and tannic of these new releases from Azelia is the 2017 Barolo Margheria. The tannins are quite present, meaning that you are required to afford generous aging time to this Barolo from Serralunga d'Alba, hoping that the fruit intensity will run the course. At this young stage, the wine shows blackberry and plum, with licorice, rusty nail and some crushed stone or terracotta clay. The wine's mineral signature is strong and elegant. In appearance, it reveals a lean and bright ruby color, and the power and natural richness of the mouthfeel come as a welcome surprise. This was a release of about 5,900 bottles. Drink Date: 2025 - 2042."

(5/27/2021) "The 2017 Barolo Margheria is herbaceous with sweet tobacco, dried black raspberry, and gentian root. The palate is drying with fast building tannins and notes of tea leaf, cherry pit, and orange pith. Hold for 3-6 years and drink 2025-2045."
