San Michele a Torri planted this Vermentino vineyard, from which the wine takes its name, a few years ago.
Since the vine has a particular shape, it looks like a half moon, they decided to call both the wine and the vineyard “Vigna della Luna” (luna=moon).
Soil: Pebbly soil, of marly calcareous nature, formed in the alluvial phase of the river Elsa in the upper Pliocene, about 3 million years ago.
This type of soil gives wines rich in body but very balanced.
Composition: produced with Vermentino grapes.
Training Method: in the vineyards we use the technique of Gouyot, with a density of approximately 4.000 plants per hectare.
Harvest period: the harvest normally takes place at the beginning of September, when the grapes have reached full ripeness.
Wine Making and Aging: the grapes are gently pressed and the must obtained is fermented in French barriques for about 20 days.
The young wine is decanted and left to age for 6 months.
Alcohol level: 14,00 % Vol.
Residual sugar: 2 g/l
Total extract: 21 g/l
Total acidity: 6,3 g/l
Tasting notes: straw yellow color with golden reflections. Fruity and floral aroma enriched with mineral notes integrated
with the sweet hints of the barrique. Warm, soft, sapid and fruity taste.
Food pairings: White wines are traditionally served with fish, but we recommend this wine also with white meats, even pork, or aged cheeses and even blue-cheese.
