Luna di luna - Hi!
I have tried the wine (luna di luna) and can translate it literally, of course. But, I am sure there is a meaning to the phrase "luna di luna" but have no idea what it is.

Does someone know what this phrase would/does mean?

- Hi Joe,
Welcome to Phrasebase :)
I've never heard of the expression "luna di luna", it doesn't make much sense.
I searched the internet for "luna di luna". It seems that it's a name given to an Italian wine produced to be exported. In fact, here in Italy there are not wines with that name.

- Thank you. It did not make much sense to me, either. And, yes, it is the name of a wine imported here in the US.

The name seemed odd to me and their web site made no reference to the meaning. A literal translation is also of little help.

If you think of something, please pass it on!
