    Good medium-deep red. Superripe, almost porty aromas of roasted plum and leather. Lush and fat in the mouth, with considerably more sweetness of fruit than the Marenca. Finishes long, with big, ripe tannins giving the wine plenty of backbone.

    Luigi Pira, who has the most massive hands I have ever encountered on a vigneron, has fashioned a more structured effort with his 1997 Barolo Margheria. This wine has become more delineated and civilized after spending time in cask and foudre. Tell-tale notes of kirsch liqueur, dried flowers, rose petals, licorice, soy, leather, and tobacco combine with scents of seaweed, chocolate, and red/black fruits. The Margheria possesses firm tannin and muscle. It is a sensationally concentrated, full-bodied, powerful Barolo in need of 2-4 years of cellaring.
