Winemaker Notes - Lunita is a very special wine to me. It is made from a very old, un-grafted, tiny vineyard of 1.5 hectares that we nourished back to life over the course of the last 13 years. The vineyard sits on the middle part of our valley and has an equal amount of calcarious material, sand pebbles, and clay. In prior years, the grapes of the Lunita vineyard were destined to Barda, as I felt that the vines were still somewhat not perfectly balanced. Slowly, as the vineyard came back to life, we decided to ferment it separately. Lunita’s grapes are picked early in the morning and are fermented in an open cement tank in whole clusters. The wine is not extracted nor concentrated as we ferment it by infusions. 50% of the elevage is done in used oak barrels and the remainder 50% is fermented in cement. - Piero Incisa

Finesse is the word to describe this with delicate strawberries, nutmeg and other, subtle spices. Medium-bodied with very fine tannins that travel across the palate and fold off the end. This is fermented with whole berries and no stems, giving it freshness and integrity on the palate. A wonderful red that brings you back for more.
