Lugana DOC
Description
Best matching for this wine are starters, warm and lukewarm but soft; it's perfect for fish and shellfish, but it works also for tender cheese. It's good as aperitif too. The purpose is to offer a light, straightforward, refined and well-balanced white wine in its early youth, but with the possibility to evolve after more complex and intriguing scents.
Vineyard region
Lugana, Verona.
Grapes
Turbiana 100%. This wine is made from "Turbiana", a local grapevine of southern hills of Garda lake, selected in the last centuries by grape-growers, protected and handed down from father to son up to now.
Soil
Clayey-calcareous of morainic origin
Winemaking
Fully ripped bunches are picked up in the middle of October, to obtain a well structured wine, provided with excellent aptitude of ageing. Winemaking is completely conducted in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. At the end of fermentation, frequent "batonages" are added to enrich wine with natural components.
Tasting notes
