The best parcels of Margheria cru matured in new, large format vats for 3 years. Pale vibrant ruby and orange. A wine of first impression and seductive nature! Complex and compelling notes frame the story of the region and meticulous winemaking. Cherry coke, dried orange rind, brandy spice, toffee, dark chocolate, furniture polish, rust, native thyme, where does it end? Orange oleo lifts the sweet fruits and dark cherry acidity. As expected, opulent texture defines the palate rather than flavour, and the tightly knit, chocolaty tannins don’t disappoint! Long, lingering orange brandy finish. A truly modern expression of the nuances of Serralunga d’Alba and, if it ever exists, a top-shelf bargain!
