Medium Body, Fruity (Freisa). DOC. Alc 13%.
Lightly sparkling red wine from one of Piedmont's oldest grape varieties, Freisa. These indigenous vines grow on hillside vineyards east of Turin (Colline Torinesi) in the area of Castelnuovo Don Bosco.
Nose bursts with fresh strawberries and on the palate it's bright and fruity with a touch of tannin that gives a savoury edge to the finish. Delicious with a platter of cold cuts and hard cheeses. (Named for the "May moon" in honour of the bottling every May.)
A vineyard selection of the best-quality freisa grapes gives a lightly-effervescent, deep hued wine that releases rich wild berry fruit with the raspberry notes typical of Freisa. Dry, with a tasty vein of acidity. Luna di maggio is an impressive wine but always easy to enjoy. It pairs well with all the traditional partners of Freisa. enjoy at 16-18°C.
Every year we select the best grapes of Freisa from Cornareto Hill and then we bottle it in May, when the wine has fully completed its natural cycle. Luna di Maggio is mildly lively, because before bottling it we add in the autoclave a small quantity of sweet wine, thus re-starting the fermentation process, which enriches this wine of its typical perlage.
