Colli di Luni Rosso DOC 'Auxo'

    • Description :

      Colli di Luni is one of the few DOC appellations that straddles two regions: the easternmost part Liguria (La Spezia) and neighboring coastal Tuscany (Massa Carrara). Everything about the Colli di Luni represents the transition between Liguria and Tuscany - the geography, the grape varieties, the wine styles.
      The key red-wine grape here is Tuscany's principal red wine grape Sangiovese, which forms the base (at least 50%) of any Colli di Luni Rosso. 'Auxo' is a Greek word meaning 'to grow, to develop', a verb that moves nature and drives the winemakers' passion.
      Vineyards: Grapes are hand harvested from vineyards in Ortonovo and Castelnuovo Magra
