VILLA MARGON CHARDONNAY TRENTINO DOC
80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Blanc, 10% Sauvignon and Incrocio Manzoni
In the 1980s, after more than a hundred years’ experience gained in the production of their legendary Ferrari Trentodoc Sparkling Wines, the Lunelli family decided to link their own name to a range of hand crafted still wines produced from grapes grown in the family’s estate vineyards on the slopes of the mountains surrounding Trento. The Tenute Lunelli range includes three wineries in three different regions of Italy: Tenuta Margon in Trentino, Tenuta Podernovo in Tuscany and Tenuta Castelbuono in Umbria. All three Tenuta Lunelli estates have a shared philosophy founded upon: respect for the diversity, identity and origin of each territory, a holistic approach to Sustainable & Organic environmental protocols, and Patience practiced as a virtue.

Villa Margon, which takes its name from the magnificent sixteenth century mountain villa, is the familial home of the Lunelli family, and acts as a hospitality centerpiece to guests of the Lunelli Group. The Trefoil in the crest of Villa Margon represents the distinct contributions of the three cultures that have claimed Trentino through the ages- Roman, Bavarian and Austro/Hungarian. The wines of Villa Margon have been certified organic since 2017.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Deep yellow with golden highlights. On the nose, very complex, fragrant and persistent, with hints of apple, grapefruit, almond blossom and citrus fruits.
Well-structured, elegant, delicate and well-balanced, it is a wine whose fruity notes are further enhanced by a small percentage of wood-aged wine. It may be enjoyed right away, but also has all the characteristics to improve with time in the bottle.
