"Deep garnet red. Ethereal bouquet featuring spice, tobacco, and brushwood notes; there are also important mineral notes. Classic and nicely harmonious wine, tannic when young and with considerable ageing potential, making it an unmistakable 'Nebbiolo of Serralunga.' 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." —winemaker
"The 2009 Barolo Margheria, however, moves us over to the Serralunga d'Alba township where power and structure are the name of the game. This wine shows big bones with firmly rooted tannins and a bold, fleshy quality of fruit. Black currant, chopped mint and licorice are woven tightly within the fabric of the wine. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2028." —Monica Larner, The Wine Advocate

"The 2009 Barolo Margheria is racy, delineated and energetic. Sweet red berries, flowers, mint and licorice jump from the glass. There is an attractive juiciness in the Margheria. I imagine the 2009 will drink well relatively early, but also develop nicely in bottle. Rose petals, dried herbs, violets and tar are all layered into the finish. Drinking window: 2014-2024." —Antonio Galloni, Vinous Media

"Beautiful cherry, strawberry, tobacco and leather flavors are displayed on the rich texture and firm structure of this sinewy red. The tannins are dusty, but this manages to find equilibrium on the long, savory finish. Best from 2017 through 2032. 460 cases made." —Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator
