Description

Cantine Lunae Vermentino Colli di Luni

Cantine Lunae Vermentino Colli di Luni is golden in colour with lively scents of citrus, apricot and floral notes – a rich palate with juicy peach, apple and lemon fruit flavours with floral and mineral undertones.

Cantine Lunae Vermentino Colli di Luni is fruity and rich, with crisp, mouth watering acidity – ideal summer drinking.

Between the villages of Ortonovo and Castelnuovo Magra, lies the ancient Roman city of Luni, close to the Ligurian border with Tuscany.

Now in the fifth generation of winemaking, the Cantine Lunae Bosoni passed into Paolo Bosoni’s hands in 1966.

The 65 hectares of vines belonging to Lunae are planted at an altitude of 250 metres and are protected by the Apuan Alps. http://cantinelunae.it/en/lvnae/

The gravel and sandy soils along with the aspect, on the hillsides facing the Mediterranean sea, all contribute to extracting the maximum expression of the native grape varieties.

“Our land, the border between Liguria and Tuscany, stretching from the hills that announce the Apuan Alps to the Ligurian Sea. 

Uniqueness and variety.

Our territory is unique: our vineyards, made up of little pieces of land (none larger than 2-3 hectares) are divided among hills, foothills and plains. The Apuan Alps and the mountains give protection from the cold northerly winds, while the sea provides good ventilation and a remarkable temperature range, excellent for the quality and characters of the wines.
  • The Terroir.

    The composition of the soil is geologically very varied, rich skeletal soil of medium texture in the hills and foothills and clay silt in the plains. The marble of the Apuans, the olive groves, the Mediterranean scrub and the sea and the distinctive features and aromas of the land surrounding our vineyards.
  • The Vineyards

    Tradition and experimentation.
    Our vineyards are located in the municipalities of Ortonovo and Castelnuovo Magra (La Spezia) and cover an area of 45 hectares. Three of these feature experimental vineyards where the properties of traditional vines are studied and developed in collaboration with the Liguria Region and the National Research Centre of Turin.
  • The Vineyards

    Nature and Ecology.
    It was decided to completely eliminate the use of herbicides and to use natural fertilizers. The grapes are harvested by hand in little crates. The time for harvesting depends on exposure and the strains cultivated, as well as on the basis of a series of analyses of the bunches and by tasting the grapes, which are then carefully selected.
  • The Vines

    An expression of our land.
    We believe in the excellence of the Genius Loci and in the exceptional nature of every single plot and its fruit. That’s why our philosophy is to appreciate and rediscover native vines in order to bring out their maximum quality. Vermentino is a vine we have always worked with, in the vineyard and the cellar, and we are well aware of the unique properties bestowed by our terroir. We also decided to preserve and plant native vines like Albarola, Vermentino Nero, Malvasia, Pollera Nera and Massareta, aware of the uniqueness of their fruit.

The history of this area is marked by the presence of the Celts, the Ligurian, and the Romans who founded the port of Lunae and which began, first, to cultivate grapes and produce wines. 

In 1966, here in this land, Paul bosons, the fourth generation of a family farmer has always been dedicated to viticulture, wine takes its course, continuing the work and the family tradition.”

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre Quick View

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2018

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.
