Tasting Notes

Ruby red at the core, tending to garnet towards the rim, Pira’s Margheria has a characteristic Barolo nose: fruity, it layers aromas of black cherry, with licorice, tobacco, leather, and sweet spices.  It is austere on the palate, concentrated in its flavors, full-bodied with firm tannins and excellent length.
