Winemaker's Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Barolo Margheria is superb. The vintage has smoothed out some of the more angular contours this wine tends to show when young, while not overpowering what remains a structured expression of Nebbiolo. Sweet dark cherries, tar, smoke, flowers, licorice and saline notes wrap around a radiant, energetic finish supported by plenty of grip. This is a fabulous wine from Giampaolo Pira. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2022."

"Fascinating aromas of nectarines and dark fruits follow through to a full body, with velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Chewy tannins. Lots of wood too. Coffee character on the finish. It will come together wonderfully with bottle age."
93 Points

"Don’t even think of drinking this wine sooner than ten years from now. Those tight, nervous tannins need time to slowly unwind and the wine presents beautiful aromas of cassis and red cherry that will evolve with aging. At the back of it all are steady tones of spicy tobacco and leather."
92 Points

"Good dark red. Brooding, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, violet and menthol. Silky-sweet and rich on entry, then impressively intense in the middle, with penetrating dark fruit flavors offering excellent precision. Finishes very long and silky, with substantial ripe tannins and lovely lingering perfume. Seems sweeter and suaver than some past vintages of this wine."
92 Points

"Shows fine depth to its black cherry and black currant flavors, with shades of chocolate in the mix. There's finesse and complexity, but also firm, dusty tannins."

Learn About Nebbiolo

Nebbiolo(neh-bee-OH-low) The King of Piedmont Nebbiolo is the key grape in the wines of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is not the most planted variety, but it does make the most distinctive and age-worthy wines. Native to Piedmont, Nebbiolo is a bit of a soil snob - it's finicky about where it grows and has long been the honored red grape of Northern Italy...
