Luigi Pira Barolo Margheria 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2007 Barolo Margheria is superb. The vintage has smoothed out some of the more angular contours this wine tends to show when young, while not overpowering what remains a structured expression of Nebbiolo. Sweet dark cherries, tar, smoke, flowers, licorice and saline notes wrap around a radiant, energetic finish supported by plenty of grip. This is a fabulous wine from Giampaolo Pira. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022...This is a head-spinning set of wines from Luigi Pira from top to bottom. I would be thrilled to drink any of these wines any day of the week. As always, Pira favors a style based on textural richness. At their best, the wines show an equal amount of elegance...94." WA 10/11 "Fascinating aromas of nectarines and dark fruits follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Chewy tannins. Lots of wood too. Coffee character on the finish. It will come together wonderfully with bottle age. Try it in 2015...93"jamessuckling.com 07/2011
