Luigi Pira Barolo Vigna Margheria 2011
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.
Earthy aromas of leather, game, sunbaked earth and mature dark-skinned berry take center stage. The tense palate offers dried black cherry, mocha, espresso licorice and tobacco alongside fresh acidity and close-grained tannins.
