Wine Critics Notes:

Wine Advocate - Score: 94 (2017 Sep.)

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.
