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 beautiful wines while retaining full respect for the life of the vineyard.
After a slow and careful de-stemming of the bunch, we proceed with a careful and precise pressing of the grape. Clarification of the must and fermentation starts with spontaneous pied de cuve in 20 Hl cement tanks and terracotta amphorae. Process that lasts about 7/10 days during which light manual punching down takes place. At the end of the fermentation, battonnage to give body and volume to the wine
