Lot #15. Luigi Pira Barolo Margheria 2007

Description: Consists of 9 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: Italy, Piedmont, Barolo.
Score: 94 WA.
"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 . . . . This is a head-spinning set of wines from Luigi Pira from top to bottom. I would be thrilled to drink any of these wines any day of the week. As always, Pira favors a style based on textural richness. At their best, the wines show an equal amount of elegance." Wine Advocate #197, Oct 2011
Provenance: The Vienna Collection
Lot Location: Orange County
