Notes from the Winemaker:

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



Ratings & Reviews



96 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Bright, with cherry and strawberry flavors, this red is lacy and elegant for the appellation, backed by sufficient tannins. Accents of licorice, spice and tobacco complete the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 516 cases made." –BS (Feb 29, 2016)

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"With fruit from Serralunga d'Alba, the 2011 Barolo Margheria benefits from luminous western and southern exposures. The heavy, dense soils of the Margheria vineyard have helped to shape an opulent expression of Nebbiolo that boasts dark color and concentration. Sweet aromas of dried blackberry and cherry lift from the glass, followed by exotic spice, balsam herb and toasted espresso bean. This a Barolo with very broad shoulders that will evolve slowly over the next decade." – Monica Larner (Jun 2015)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"A racy Barolo, the 2011 Margheria hits the palate with dark red and black cherries, smoke, tobacco, licorice, new leather and cloves. The rich, boisterous personality of the year comes through in spades in a relatively fleshy, opulent Serralunga Barolo that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Next to the Parafada, the Margheria presents a more horizontal expression of tannin and structure, yet at the same time the fruit is more overt." -- Antonio Galloni (Mar 2015)

93 Points - James Suckling
:
"A dense and powerful red with tar, dark berry and spice character such as cloves. Full-bodied, intense and rich. Better than 2010. Try in 2018." (April 13th, 2015)

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast:
"Dark berry, scorched earth, menthol and baking spice aromas come together on this along with a balsamic note. The tense palate delivers steeped plum, dried black cherry, mint, sage clove and licorice set against youthfully assertive tannins. Drink 2019–2028. - KO (Dark berry, scorched earth, menthol and baking spice aromas come together on this along with a balsamic note.
