Luigi Pira 'Margheria' Barolo 2011
Not Vintage Specific
Wine Spectator 94
"Dense and compact, with a core of cherry and plum flavors shaded by tobacco, tar, mineral and spice accents. Fresh, leaving a layer of mouthcoating tannins on the finish. Best from 2019 through 2034. 420 cases made.–BS"
Vinous Media 91-93
"Iron, smoke, savory herbs and dark fruit all inform the 2011 Barolo Margheria, the most ferrous and intensely mineral Barolo in the range. There is an explosive energy to the 2011 that is impossible to miss. This is one of the most tense, unyielding wines of the year, yet there is plenty of depth in the glass. Readers will not find a lot of vintage 2011 sexiness, but rather a Barolo that is going to need time to fully unwind. -- Antonio Galloni"
Ruby red at the core, tending to garnet towards the rim, Pira's Margheria has a characteristic Barolo nose: fruity, it layers aromas of black cherry, with licorice, tobacco, leather, and sweet spices. It is austere on the palate, concentrated in its flavors, full-bodied with firm tannins and excellent length.
