Margherita Otto Vino Chinato 500ml


We have 5 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

Margherita Otto Vino Chinato, produced by one of Barolo's rising estates under proprietor Alan Manley, represents a blend of tradition and innovation within the storied Italian wine region. This sweet fortified wine, crafted from Nebbiolo grapes, embodies the essence of Barolo's terroir while paying homage to classic winemaking methods.

  • Soil Type & Terroir: Leveraging diverse vineyard plots across Barolo, including the clay-rich Ginestra in Monforte d’Alba and the sandy Pernanno in Castiglione Falletto, the wine benefits from a varied terroir that contributes depth and complexity.

  • Grape Varieties: Made from Nebbiolo, including declassified lots from Barolo and Langhe Nebbiolo, this Chinato showcases the varietal's characteristic elegance and intensity, balanced with the added botanicals.

  • Winemaking: Embracing the traditional "assemblaggio" approach, Manley co-ferments grapes from different parcels in a single tank, followed by extensive maceration and aging in Slovenian oak, ensuring a harmonious integration of flavors.

  • Production: With an annual production of about 2,000 500ml bottles, this Chinato is a rare find, crafted outside the winery to comply with Italian law, and is distinguished by its refined balance of sweetness, bitterness, and aromatic complexity.

  • Tasting Notes: Margherita Otto's Chinato is noted for its sophisticated balance, less bitter and more nuanced than typical Chinatos, with a lower alcohol content that enhances its elegance.

Nested in northwestern Italy, Piedmont is a region that oozes with charm and allure. Home to some of the world’s most highly regarded wines like Barolo and Barbaresco, Piedmont is a treasure trove of wine delights. The hilly region is planted to a host of local grapes, but it’s the noble Nebbiolo which takes center stage.


Nebbiolo, a prestigious grape from Italy's Piedmont region, is celebrated for its profound truffle and rose aromas, complex flavors, and ability to age gracefully thanks to strong acidity and tannins, producing the renowned Barolo and Barbaresco wines.
