1995 Luigi Pira, Barolo, Vigneto Margheria (RT 91) Bought on release and stored in my cellar since, SO’d for the day prior to serving, then poured directly from bottle and followed over the course of three nights. Showing a classic translucent garnet hue, the bouquet is fantastic, showing all the classical notes of a fine Serralunga bottling with a core built on ferrous notes, meat, cedar and dried herbs. With time in the glass layers of smokiness emerge, making the bouquet more alluring. The palate is a different story, showing mature finesse, medium palate weight, and fine grained, silky tannins. Anyone holding can open with confidence of a mature Barolo experience, drink now and over the coming decade.
