From a westerly exposed site on limestone, fossil rich soils in Ancona. The colour in the glass conjures up images of the sun going down on the limestone slopes where the vines are located. Deep cloudy pink, with a peachy, slightest orange hue. No filtering here - as winemaker Paoloa says "a wine in continual evolution, moody, like the moon." Eton mess, apricots baked with thyme and honey and rhubarb barley sugar.


Tasting Notes

Mun is a wine that is continually evolving, "moody, as the moon", according to Paolo. We suggest that you shake the bottle before opening it to move the lees - the wine has been fermented until its completely dry, but the lees residue creates a savoury-sweet complexity that is so very moreish - and fantastic when food comes into play. Rosé can be so much more than your common or garden Côtes de Provence - let pink Mun open your mind.


Press Note:

Decanter's MUST-TRY rose October 2017 "A wonderfully textured rose with an orange hue, it's unfiltered and requires gentle shaking before opening to mix up the lees. Delicate strawberry aromas, but the weight and grip on the palate call for something delicious to go with it."
