PIETRAGRANDE TRENTINO BIANCO DOC
85% Chardonnay, 15% Sauvignon
The Lunelli family, third generation winemakers at Ferrari Trento DOC have pursued their passion for wine with the creation of Tenute Lunelli, comprised of three wine estates located in three different regions of Italy: Tenuta Castelbuono in Umbria, Tenuta Podernovo in Tuscany, and Villa Margon in Trentino.
In the 1980’s, the Lunelli Family determined to link their familial name to their still wines from Trentino, sourced exclusively from grapes grown in the family’s historic vineyards on the slopes of the high hills surrounding Trento. Villa Margon, is located on the right bank of the Adige River to the south-west of Trento, an estate owned by the Lunelli family. Thanks to the dramatic diurnal temperature shifts, and the altitude of the vineyards, the unique mountain viticulture manifests intense and sophisticated aromas in the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. The first vintage of Villa Margon Pietragrande was in 2013.
The wineries Trefoil symbol located on the front label represents the distinct contributions of the three cultures that have claimed Trentino-Roman, Bavarian & Austro/Hungarian.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

Fruity and mellow on the nose, it displays fresh sensations of white flowers that alternate with notes of apples and pears and hints of aromatic herbs. It is lively, refreshing and tangy; mouth-filling, rounded fruit on the front palate gives way to appealing citrus-like notes and mineral hints on the finish.
