Luigi Pira Barolo Margheria 2010
"Sweet flowers, mint, licorice and black cherries emerge from the glass in the 2010 Barolo Vigna Margheria. Firm and massive today, the 2010 is going to require a good bit of patience. The tannins are huge and imposing at this stage, but there is more than enough density in the fruit to make me hopeful for the future. Overall - and within the context of Giampaolo Pira's wines - the 2010 Marenca is a pretty classic feeling Barolo endowed with striking aromatics and gorgeous overall presence. Patience is going to be key here...90-93" AG 01/14
Editorial Reviews for Luigi Pira Barolo Margheria
Limestone immediately on the nose over dark, dried black cherry fruit with hints of kind of black small seeds/watermelon seeds the way they are aromatic in the mouth. This feels a bit forced perhaps but it delivers big black fruit that is medicinally framed and full of minerality, with nice cut on the palate, a touch of late arriving dried mushroom, and tar, and a big finish with lot of power to the long clear black fruit finale, 92pts

Pira's 2001 Barolo Margheria, a medium ruby, offers a super-fine, perfumed nose of spices, vanilla and menthol. Today it is austere and inexpressive on the palate showing just a hint of ripe red fruit, but displaying good length. Although some rough ... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

A Nebbiolo wine from Piedmont in Italy. 2001 Luigi Pira Barolo Margheria 750ml
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.
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.
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.
