The 2017 Barolo Margheria is gorgeous. Open, perfumed aromatics are immediately alluring. On the palate, the 2017 is a dark, mysterious wine, with layers of flavor that continue to develop over time. Dark cherry, blood orange, spice, leather, iron and scorched earth add striking layers of nuance. The tannins are potent – we are in Serralunga after all – but the 2017 has so much to offer. It’s a gorgeous Barolo to enjoy over the next two decades, maybe more.
