1996 Luigi Pira "Margheria" Barolo

SKU #232340 90-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1996 Barolo Margheria combines the best of the traditional style of Barolo with the more progressive modern wine making style. The color is a saturated plum. Over-ripe aromas of black fruits are accompanied by scents of soy, coffee, smoke, licorice, and dried herbs. Dense and full-bodied, with terrific fruit intensity, this multidimensional, layered wine is exceptionally rich yet sweet and forward. (RP) Inner quote mark (8/1999)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium orange-tinged red. Expressive aromas of redcurrant liqueur and underbrush. Suppler, sweeter and riper than the Marenca; not especially complex but mellow and enticing. Finishes with very good length and nicely buffered, relatively gentle tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (11/2000)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rich, yummy, plummy wine with hints of tobacco and mushrooms. Medium-bodied, with soft tannins and a flavorful finish of cedar, cherry and meat. (JS, Web Only-2000) Inner quote mark
