Vinous 93 - The 2012 Barolo Margheria is a bit deeper and richer than the Bricco Fiasco. Savory herbs, dried flowers, iron and minerals are some of the signatures. This is an especially feral, powerful Barolo for the vintage, with real intensity and nuance to round out its powerful personality. The tannins are firm and dusty, but there is more than enough fruit to balance things out. The Margheria was aged entirely in cask.

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. Pairing: Pair with roasted game dish (herb-crusted roast lamb rack), braised beef and truffle.
