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". It is best to decant and serve it at temperatures between 18-20°C. 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.

Wine SpectatorBright, 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.

James SucklingA dense and powerful red with tar, dark berry and spice character such as cloves. Full-bodied, intense and rich. Better than 2010.

Wine EnthusiastDark 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.

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.
