Notes from the Winemaker:

Appearance: deep garnet red.
Bouquet: ethereal, featuring spicy, tobacco and brushwood notes; there are also important mineral notes.
Flavour: classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable ageing potential, making it an unmistakable “Nebbiolo of Serralunga”.

An important wine, it encapsulates all the history of our land and fully expresses its talents when served with rich dishes, such as roast red meats or game stew. It is also excellent with medium-mature and mature cheeses.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Wine Spectator
"There's lovely sweet fruit, cedar and strawberry character in this wine, which is full and supersilky, with ultrarefined tannins and a plum and berry aftertaste. Very polished and pretty. Best after 2013. 380 cases made." – JS (Jul 31, 2009)

93 Points - Vinous Media:
"Massolino's cask-aged 2005 Barolo Margheria is a sweet, layered wine that shows superb depth and precision. Deceptively medium in body, the wine offers up plums, spices, licorice, iron, herbs and flowers in a chiseled, beautifully articulated style, with a long, pure finish. There is plenty of punch underneath, however, and this delicious Barolo should drink well to age 20 and likely beyond. Today the Margheria is quite fresh and primary, and readers will need to be patient before the wine is ready to give its finest. This is classic Serralunga Barolo." - Antonio Galloni (April 2009)

"The nose has pretty elements of hazelnut and chocolate in a Nutella-like twist that is accented by smoke, black stone, leather and wild berries. The wine has good intensity, acidity and a streamlined mouthfeel that suggests it needs at least five more years in the bottle." M.L. — (4/1/2009)
