Colli di Luni Vermentino Numero Chiuso 2015
as the name implies is an exclusive Vermentino, "IL VERMENTINO" par excellence, produced in only 2600 bottles only in the vintages deemed best. Paolo Bosoni's intuition, sensitivity and experience pour into this Ligurian excellence obtained from the grape of choice of his territory, the Colli di Luni. After the Lunae winery has focused on enhancing the expression of Vermentino to the maximum, it now emphasizes the possibility of tasting it in a more complex and profound version, after a long aging on its lees has run its course.
It is the result of a refined selection of Vermentino grapes harvested in the historical areas with the greatest vocation. After fermentation in steel tanks preceded by a 12-hour cold maceration, the wine undergoes the long-awaited evolution process which reaches almost 15 months, in the presence of its own yeasts. The wine remains to refine further in steel for 8 months and for another 2 months in glass.
It is characterized by a bright yellow color with slight golden reflections. The nose gives an intense and rich bouquet, composed of hints that go from the Mediterranean scrub to ripe white fruit. It envelops the palate in breadth, where honey notes and fresh balsamic references are found. The finish is long and persistent, with almondy hints.
Excellent with fish and oyster appetizers, it marries divinely with fresh cheeses.
