Vigna Rionda Massolino Barolo Margheria 2007
Very Burgundian in style, this red delivers strawberry and cherry flavors, accented by notes of herbs and underbrush. Still a bit stingy on the finish, but the balance is there, so be patient. Best from 2015 through 2029.Add winemaker's notes

The 2007 Barolo Margheria is fabulously ripe and explosive in its dark red fruit, leather, licorice and anise. Medium to full in body, the Margheria possesses superb delineation and nuance to match its elegant personality. It turns exuberant again on the finish, where floral, minty notes add lift and freshness. The 2007 Margheria is a wonderfully complete, regal Barolo from Massolino with a bright future ahead of it. Anticipated maturity: 2015andndash;2027.
Good full red. A bit aromatically compressed on the nose today, with the warm vintage and oak element dominating. Then large-scaled, dense and sweet in the mouth but in a youthfully dumb stage. A big and very long Barolo but a bit aggressive, even tough, today and hard to judge. Iandrsquo;d lay this down for five or six years.
