Aleš, Lunar,Movia Ribolla 1LT
REGION: Goriška Brda, Slovenia
GOOD TO KNOW: the eclectic Aleš considers Ribolla the king of wines-nature, the name Lunar comes from ‘moon’ (‘luna’) because its done with the help of the moon phases, following its cycles. You will drink the wine and the grape too, it’s pure nature in your wineglass. If you are curios check on http://www.movia.si/en/wine/lunar how to decanter Lunar. It’s really fascinating! The Movia estate dates back to 1700, passing into the hands of the Kristančič family with a wedding in 1820. It has been said that Movia wines were one of Ernest Hemingway favorites.
TASTE: Medium to full bodied, wood hues on the nose with a hint of some fines herbs. On the palate is dry, elegant, earthy, citrus, slightly bitters and fun. Long after taste that leaves you thinking.
