In 2004 Luigi decided to age part of this Cru in large casks: an exemplary work. From it Margheria takes its best from itself. Complex aromas, black fruits, licorice and spices in the typical Serralunga style. Energetic. The tannins frame the structure giving density and deepness to the wine. Mineral, earthy, salty. Impressive.

The cherry and plum flavors are buried in a dense matrix of tannins, shaded by tobacco, leather, tar and iron notes. Linear and persistent on the finish, if less expressive at this stage than its peers. Best from 2021 through 2040. 566 cases made.

This vineyard is located in Serralunga d'Alba, where the soils are rich with clay and limestone. Vines are 50 years old, on average. The 2013 Barolo Margheria is a terrific wine with broad shoulders and a fully loaded, exuberant personality. The bouquet is dark and gristly in places with aromas of dark cherry followed by smoked bacon fat and cured tobacco. These are classic characteristics of this vineyard site, and they come through with absolute clarity in this classic vintage. There is a pronounced mineral note of campfire ash and pencil shaving as well.

Rose, underbrush, dried berry and balsamic notes lead the nose. The taut structured palate evokes juicy strawberry, crushed cherry, star anise and cake spice framed in tightly woven fine-grained tannins. It's elegant and well balanced, with fresh acidity. Drink 2023-2033.
