One of the few wines in the Santa Margherita range to depart from the production philosophy of single-variety wines that began with Pinot Grigio. The four grapes that go into Luna dei Feldi are vinified in reducing conditions to maintain their primary aromas intact. Fermentation is carried out at low temperature to imbue the wine with rich secondary aromas. In spring, the wines are blended in just the right proportions and prepared for bottling.
The crystal-clear straw yellow shimmers with greenish highlights. Aromatic profiles from the four varieties are recognisable on nose and palate, the florality of Chardonnay and Pinot Bianco mingling with the green apples and nettles of Müller Thurgau and, notably, Gewürztraminer’s grapefruit and rose petals. On the palate, the unique flavour characteristics of each grape come together in perfect harmony.
Superb with fish, seafood and crustacean-based preparations, even if served in elaborate sauces. Delicious with white meats and particularly flavoursome vegetable dishes. An intriguing partner for oriental cuisine.
