CANTINA LUNAE

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. The absolute dedication to quality and the passion of the Bosoni family have established this estate at the forefront of wine producers in the Colli di Luni region.

TASTING NOTES

Intense, persistent, sophisticated aroma of hawthorn, grapefruit, rennet apple, white peach and a pleasing undertone of acacia honey. Fresh and properly balanced on the palate, it rewards us with interesting developments of taste. The wine’s structure makes it particularly suitable for the dishes of traditional Ligurian cuisine, such as “testarolo” pancakes with mushrooms, Ligurian-style stuffed pasta, anchovy and squid pies.

TASTING NOTES

Few vintages have expressed all the virtues of the Tuscan coast’s climate as eloquently as 2016. An almost perfect combination of sunshine, warm summer days and cool nights, with just about enough rain to slow down the vine’s growth without making them suffer from drought have led to one of the purest expressions of Le Volte dell’Ornellaia, combining perfectly ripe...

The ancient Roman city of Luni, close to the Ligurian border with Tuscany is home to Cantine Lunae. In 1966 Paolo Bosoni made his dreams a reality and switched the focus of the family’s land from agriculture to vine growing. His family are all passionately involved in helping create wines from local grape varieties which mirror the gravelly soils, beautiful climate and their own dedication to quality.

The vineyards are dotted in small parcels in the hills, foothills and plains running down to the Mediterranean sea. This unique microclimate is protected from the cold north winds by the Apuan Alps, while the sea promotes a high diurnal range and good ventilation which is key to the production of healthy grapes and vibrant, fresh concentrated wines.

Paolo is a pioneer of indigenous varieties, and he has experimental vineyards which he studies in conjunction with the Liguria region and the National Research Centre of Turin. As a result of this extensive research the estate eschews the use of herbicides in favour of natural fertilisers and harvest decisions are made based on vineyard observations as much as technical analysis.

The absolute dedication to quality and the passion of the Bosoni family have established this estate at the forefront of wine producers in the Colli di Luni region, a reputation you will understand when you taste their intense, mineral driven wines.
