The 2000 Barolo Margheria, fresher and sweeter than the regular bottling, features aromas of anisette and cinnamon, long and balanced flavors, and a greater intensity on the finish. Drink: 2005andndash;2017.

Luigi Pira, who has the most massive hands I have ever encountered on a vigneron, has fashioned a more structured effort with his 1997 Barolo Margheria. This wine has become more delineated and civilized after spending time in cask and foudre. Tell-tale notes of kirsch liqueur, dried flowers, rose petals, licorice, soy, leather, and tobacco combine with scents of seaweed, chocolate, and red/black fruits. The Margheria possesses firm tannin and muscle. It is a sensationally concentrated, full-bodied, powerful Barolo in need of 2ndash;4 years of cellaring. It should drink well between 2004ndash;2020.

Silky and balanced, with coffee, cedar and plum character. Full-bodied, with very silky tannins and a long, long finish. Caressing, rich wine. Best after 2009.
