Nestled on the Ligurian border with Tuscany, near the remains of the ancient Roman city of Luni,  Cantine Lunae has been pushing boundaries of Ligurian wines since Paolo Bosoni took the helm of the winery in 1966. His family's dedication to quality is helping to create incredibly vibrant and intense wines from local grape varieties which are a true distillate of their soils, Mediterranean climate and their respectful viticulture. From the mineral expression of Vermentino to spicy Albarola, there is plenty to discover and experiment with their range.

To create a wine Vermentino "Etichetta Nera" winemakers used grapes grown in vineyards in Castelnuovo Magra and Ortonovo in Colli di Luni in northwest Italy. The vineyards of Colli di Luni, classified as DOC, is located in two regions of Italy - in Liguria and Tuscany. The cultivation of grapes and production of wine in the Colli di Luni is strictly controlled by conditions denomination. Vermentino grapes to create a "Etiketta Nera" ("Black Label") is collected from the 35-year-old vines. Gathering takes place in mid-September. Vinification includes maceration on grape skins for 48 hours and the fermentation in stainless steel vats. Subsequent exposure of wine in steel tanks lasts until March or April of next year. More: https://winestyle.co.uk
