About the wine

This wine undergoes a process of destemming, foot treading, and maceration for 18-20 days. It is then aged for six months in concrete before being transferred to tonneaux for 1 year, where it rests on the lees. After that, the wine is racked once again to concrete and fiberglass and left to rest for an additional year. It is bottled without any fining or filtering. The winemakers exclusively use the natural yeasts found on the grape skins, employing the "pie de cuve" method to prevent uncontrolled fermentation. Once the grape juice has transformed into wine, it is decanted on fruit days according to the lunar calendar and spends the entire winter on its fine lees. These lees are stirred weekly through batonnage to enhance the wine's stability and richness.

The Producer: Mani di Luna

The Azienda, spanning 35 hectares, is situated in Torgiano, an area historically inhabited by the Etruscans. It is divided into two parts: one near the confluence of the Chiascio River and the Tiber, and the other in the hills at an elevation ranging from 200 to 400 meters above sea level. Originally owned by the Lungarotti Family, the lands were later inherited by Maria Lungarotti's son, Mario Cascianelli, a lawyer who had a deep passion for the countryside. Cascianelli recognized the significant potential of these lands for fruit cultivation, particularly vineyards, olive groves, and cherry orchards. In 2012, Fattoria Mani di Luna was established by three friends, Simone, Rocco, and Alessandro, who shared a common goal of revitalizing the Azienda using organic and biodynamic methods. The farm follows lunar cycles associated with the movement of constellations and employs manual and artisanal techniques to produce natural products with exceptional nutritional and energetic value, while also prioritizing the well-being of plants and the environment.
