A racy Barolo, the 2011 Margheria hits the palate with dark red and black cherries, smoke, tobacco, licorice, new leather and cloves. The rich, boisterous personality of the year comes through in spades in a relatively fleshy, opulent Serralunga Barolo that should drink well with minimal cellaring. Next to the Parafada, the Margheria presents a more horizontal expression of tannin and structure, yet at the same time the fruit is more overt. Drink 2017-2031

A dense and powerful red with tar, dark berry and spice character such as cloves. Full-bodied, intense and rich. Better than 2010. Try in 2018.
