The Greek word Auxo means "grow, develop", it describes the spirit and work of the Cantine Lunea, always in harmony with Mother Nature.
The red wine presents itself with intense ruby red color.
The scent of aromas of ripe red fruits, blueberries and blackberries, plums and red mulberries is beguiling and animating. The spicy note, reminiscent of black pepper and liquorice, is subtle in the background and flatters its Mediterranean origin.
The wine is silky and soft, lies discreetly on the palate and tongue and leaves a pleasant tannin structure.
Food recommendation for the Auxo Colli di Luni DOC
Simple Italian cuisine from the country such as lasagna, a ‘Pasta al Ragout’ or cannelloni in tomato sauce go best with this representative from Liguria.
Facts about the construction and expansion of the Auxo Colli di Luni DOC of the Cantine Lunae
The 30-year-old Canaiolo, Ciliegiolo & Sangiovese vines, which form the blend for the Auxo Colli di Luni DOC of the Cantine Lunae, stand on skeleton-rich vineyards interspersed with pebbles. They crowd densely with 4000 sticks on a single hectare. After the fully ripe grapes have been harvested in the course of September, they are carefully fermented in stainless steel at a maceration time of about 10 days. Alcoholic fermentation is followed by a 6-month ageing phase in large old oak barrels, which give the wine additional complexity and aging potential as well as finesse and expressiveness.
