The Margheria vineyard is one of Serralunga’s most important and illustrious sites. The Massolino family bought their first parcel here in 1964, and the remainder came online during the ’70s. The current holding is 1.5 hectares. Sitting at 280 metres above sea level, Margheria is a very chalky vineyard with a good percentage of sand (which brings elegance), while the high calcium carbonate content brings vibrant, mineral energy to the natural depth of Serralunga.
As with all three 2019 Crus, the Margheria was fermented in large, conical oak fermenters and had around two weeks on skins. It was then aged in botti for 30 months before bottling, and then remained in bottle for a further year before release. This is a benchmark release for this wine—a superb, powerful and incredibly mineral Margheria. As always, it’s pretty and perfumed and yet with plenty of structure as well. A truly great release for this wine.
