La Miraja Chardonnay Coure di Luna
|Availability:||In stock (2)|
La Miraja is nestled within the original castle of Castagnole Monferrato, constructed in the 11th century and retrofitted to serve as a cellar in the 1400s. In this armory-turned-cellar, Eugenio Gatti turns out Barbera d’Asti, and his fabled Ruché. A seventh-generation viticulturist, Eugenio personally tends to the oldest vineyard of Ruché in Castagnole Monferrato, the original birthplace of Ruché. It is here that Eugenio Gatti devotes his life’s work to producing 840 transcendent cases of wine each year.
"Coure di Luna" is hand-harvested fruit is destemmed and then crushed by basket press into stainless-steel tanks, where native fermentation occurs. This Chardonnay does not undergo malolactic fermentation. After 3 months in tank on the fine lees, the wine rests for an additional 4 months in bottle prior to release.
