Earthy and energetic on the palate, the tannins frame the structure giving density and deepness to the wine.

95 Points - Wine Advocate
"You can taste the softness and richness of the warm vintage in the 2015 Barolo Margheria. The wine offers dark fruit flavors and lots of rich, plump fruit at the back. This is a softly textured wine that can also be consumed in the near or medium term. This single-vineyard Barolo from Serralunga d'Alba ages in botti grandi for 36 months. The vines are 60 years old, and the soils are rich with limestone clay. Some 6,200 bottles were made." -ML, 6/28/19

94 Points - Vinous
"The 2015 Barolo Margheria shows the textural breadth of Serralunga in its compelling interplay of succulent, layered fruit and bright, soil-driven tones, with mineral inflections that add layers of complexity. Sage, tobacco, cedar, rose petal, menthol, anise and dried flowers fill out the wine's frame effortlessly. All the elements are nicely balanced. In 2015 the Margheria is all class." -AG, Feb/2019

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Truffle, brown spice, wild berry and rose aromas take shape in the glass along with a whiff of tar. Firm and refined, the polished palate offers dried black cherry, licorice and tobacco alongside taut, elegant tannins. Drink 2021–2027." -KO, 12/1/19

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"A whiff of smoked salumi leads off, followed by cherry, spice and tar flavors. Tightly packed, showing major grip on the long finish. The tannins are dense yet civilized, exhibiting harmony. Best from 2024 through 2043. 675 cases made, 230 cases imported." -BS, 2020
