A wine of clear amber colour, dense texture that quickly stops the twist in the glass.
Its bouquet is intense, mostly fruity. We notice aromas of ripe apricot, peach, red apple, yellow fig, grapes soaked in alcohol, mango and pineapple. Candied orange is joined by notes of dandelion, wild mint and thyme. At the same time, we notice a slight note of straw, saffron, sweet root and cloves.
The wine is dry, soft, but it leaves stage to lively freshness, minerality and accentuated tannins. A wine of intensity and decisiveness. Lasting persistency and elegance that looks forward to its long future.
A wine of harmonious character that challenges us by walking along the edge. It reflects the notes of grapes in alcohol, which further emphasizes the ripening of whole grapes in barrels.
These properties make it ideal for accompaniment to risottos with mushrooms, potato dumplings with rabbit or veal ragout, blue fish, octopus from the oven. For the more daring, the obligatory accompaniment of dishes with morel mushrooms and sweet breads.

First touch is done during the harvest, when we pick the grapes; Ribolla grapes are destemmed and poured in barrique barrels (without usage of pump). And second, when we do batonage and add wine for 7 months. After 7 months we pour wine into the bottles. Lunar has no added sulphur.|
