La Collina ‘Lunaris Secco’ Malvasia dell’Emilia IGT 2016

Winery: Located in Emilia-Romagna, northern Italy, Cooperative Agricola La Collina was founded in 1975 by 12 passionate young men “with ambitious visions aimed for something entirely new”. Organic and biodynamic principles have always been strictly followed throughout the entire farm. [including free-range animals, grains and vegetables; that they have a shop where they sell their produce, wines, honeys, breads, cheese and other products they make.] Enea Burani, one of the founders who leads the cooperative is renowned for his work with biodynamics in the region, along with his humanitarian accomplishments.

Winemaking: Certified organic and biodynamic. Grapes are from vines planted in 1984, in limestone and sand soil. Fermented in stainless steel with natural yeasts. One of the winery’s best sellers, ‘Lunaris Secco’ is their “answer to the cheap prosecco’s that are made industrially and are without taste and character!”

Tasting Notes: Gold in colour with aromas of orange blossom, apple and a hint of buttery brioche. Lively and fresh, with red apple, toast, and peppy bubbles. Honey and a squeeze of lemon on the dry, fruity finish. Crisp and easy drinking, yet with a creamy undercurrent, this is fantastic on its own or with unique flavours. [It was fantastic with an assortment of Italian cheeses.]
