The classic Cinque Terre wine is a dry, aromatic white made of Bosco, Albarola, and Vermentino. It is characterized by crisp acidity and a delicate bouquet of hay, citrus and green apples. A salty whiff of minerality serves as a reminder of the vineyards' coastal situation.
Colli di Luni straddles Liguria and Tuscany on the picturesque Italian Riviera. Ivan Giuliani has run the estate since the early '90s.
A blend of Bosco, Vermentino and Albarola grapes. Grown in terraced vineyards overlooking the sea, located in the
town of Riomaggiore. The total area stretches a mere one hectare, fragmented into about sixteen plots. The soils are sandy terraces, resulting from the decomposition of mica schist and sandstone. Short maceration and fermentation at low temperatures, then aged on its lees in stainless steel vats for a year.
