Luigi Pira Margheria Barolo 2018
Garnet red color. Very intense and complex nose with notes of fruit and flowers and hints of leather and fresh hay. In the mouth it is full-bodied, elegant, with pleasant tannins that are typical of Nebbiolo and of the wines made in the area of Serralunga d'Alba. Perfect balance between tradition and innovation.
Aromas of cherries and raspberries, enriched by perfumed oak. Full-bodied with a dense, silky bead of fruit and tannin that gives good length. The fruit and oak tannins are nicely integrated here, giving a grainy, velvety framework to the wine. The fruit persists nicely. Excellent quality here, but give it another couple of years for even better integration. Best from 2024.
Rich, delivering plum, cherry, floral and light eucalyptus flavors. Supple and balanced, with a light dusting of tannins on the lingering finish. Approachable now, but should improve over the next 3 to 5 years. Best from 2024 through 2040. 400 cases made, 200 cases imported.
