"Lunatica" Liguria di Levante Bianco IGT, Il Torchio (2019) - Liguria
Gold in colour with layered aromas of bramble, grass, lemon, echinacea, mandarin orange and candied ginger. Lemon, mango, ginger, buttery toast, and a herbaceous nuance glide atop fresh acidity and a trace of green tea tannins. Hay, lemon and honey linger on the silky finish. Vibrant, fun and gluggable.
Grapes are hand-harvested, followed by a punctilious selection of the best berries.
3 days of carbonic maceration + spontaneous fermentation.
6 months of maceration on the skins in terracotta and two months in second-hand wood.
It is unfined, unfiltered, with no added sulfites.
