Sobi Cannonau Blend
A brilliant project by Gian Matteo Baldi, Bentu Luna’s winery is located in the heart of Sardinia, where life operates the same way it has for hundreds of years. They work with tiny vineyards rarely larger than a single hectare, often containing 10 or more native varieties within. They care for the vineyards like living creatures; choosing the most natural soil working techniques, analyzing in depth the subsoil, the microclimate and all the biodiversity present in them; studying all atmospheric agents. Passion and love are accompanied by great technique and precision. The constant monitoring of the development of the plant, and the traditional processes such as plowing with oxen allow for the creation of a synergistic relationship between the business goal of obtaining high quality grapes in full respect of the life of the vineyard.
