Vinous 93 points - Pira’s 2008 Barolo Vigna Margheria has developed very nicely since I first tasted it in November 2011. The typical power and weight of this site comes through, but in 2008 the Margheria has an extra dimension of sexiness that makes it highly appealing. Dark cherries, plums, asphalt, melted road tar, dried rose petals and licorice are some of the many notes that come to life in the glass. The weight and tannic finish is pure Margheria, even if the 2008 isn’t quite the bruiser it often is. Pira aged the Margheria in 20-hectoliter casks. This is a terrific showing. -- Antonio Galloni  (Apr 2012)
