Fattoria Mani di Luna
Fattoria Mani di Luna is located in Torgiano, in the heart of the Umbrian countryside. Founded in 2012 by 3 friends, Simone, Rocco and Alessandro, with the aim of redeveloping an old company, converting it back to the methods of Biodynamic agriculture. Fattoria Mani di Luna through manual and artisanal workmanship tries to obtain natural products of high nutritional and energetic value respecting plants and the environment. The artisan vinification methods respect the lunar cycles during the transformation of the grapes into wine. Today the company has about 35 hectares that are located near the confluence of the river Chiascio with the Tiber and is in the hills at an altitude between 200 and 400 m s.l.m. The harvest is manual, and after careful selection, the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed with the feet, which are the best possible method to preserve and enhance the qualitative characteristics of the starting grapes. The white wines are partly macerated briefly on the skins and partly pressed into whole bunches very softly on vertical wooden presses. When the must has become wine, it is decanted following the lunar calendars and passes all winter on its own fine lees. The bottling is preceded by only decanting, dictated by time and by the constellations, suitable to clarify the wine, without performing any kind of clarification or filtration. The wines of Fattoria Mani di Luna are produced with passion, love and careful care able to express the terroir.
