This 23 hectare estate has been in the Massolino family since 1896. Since 1994 the style of the wines has undergone a subtle transformation. This is in part dictated by the nature of the vineyards that the Massolino family owns in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba – the source of some of the greatest, most structured, robust and long-lived Barolo wines.
Just over 1.7, hectare, the Margheria cru vineyard is situated at the heart of Serralunga d’Alba, subregion of Barolo. Margheria vineyard is at an altitude of 340 m. above sea level. The soil is predominantly limestone with a fair percentage of sand that gives the wines elegance. The vines are 35 years old on average, Guyot trained, with 5,300 vines per ha.
Fantastic vineyard which combines the potency of our lands with the elegance and harmony generated by the sandy percentage of the soil. Traditional vinification and aging are the natural complement to the outstanding characteristics of the grapes.
