Azelia Barolo Margheria 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2008 Barolo Margheria opens with a sweet, inviting bouquet redolent of hard candy, flowers, mint and licorice. Deceptively medium in body, the Margheria packs quite a bit of punch, even if that isn’t totally obvious at the outset. Layers of dark fruit flow through to a powerful, incisive finish laced with dried flowers and spices. The Margheria is notable for its intensity and textural depth. It is another super-classy wine from Azelia...Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028...94"WA 04/2012 "A sanguine red, with graphite and sawdust flavors accented by tea. This is taut and firms up on the finish, but the tea, tobacco and spice notes linger. Best from 2015 through 2027...91" WS 11/12
