Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Lunaria 'Coste di Moro'
Founded by Camillo Zulli and six other growers in 1964, Cantina Orsogna (the producer of Lunaria), has expanded to a cooperative of 600+ farmers, all struck with the passion for the land they grow on. The farmers possess a powerful desire to achieve a greater level of integration and reciprocity between themselves, the terroir, community, and wildlife. This achieves wine that is honest and neighborly – happiness in a drink. Lunaria is an Organic & Biodynamic brand of the Cantina Orsogna cooperative located at the foot of Majella National Park in Abruzzo, one of the most intact natural parks in Europe. The presence of distinct flora and fauna right next to the vineyards allows for rich biodiversity and quality soil. The cooperative spans several vineyards, 70% organic, 30% biodynamic, and 100% integrated with the land perfectly.
‘Coste di Moro’ serves as the flagship wine for Lunaria, just as Montepulciano serves the flagship red varietal in Abruzzo. Aromas of black cherry, cocoa, red fruit dominate the nose.
