LUGANA DOC 2017
A refined vintage white wine with a strong identity that reflects its origins.
The temperate breezes of Lake Garda and the ancient clay soils, of moraine origin, give this wine scents, aromas and unmistakable flavors that recall the summer.
Lugana is a DOC wine, which owes its name to a locality located in the Municipality of Sirmione, produced from an extraordinary grape, the Turbiana.
It has a straw yellow color and green and golden reflections. It emits intriguing notes of white peach, mango and pineapple, citrus hints of grapefruit, accompanied by floral tones of lily of the valley, linden, chamomile and jasmine, to close with an aromatic tips of thyme, almond and white pepper.
It envelops the palate in a balanced way, with a pleasant flavor and freshness, which lingers pleasantly in a fruity trail with almond notes.
It goes well with appetizers, soups, lake fish, white meats and fresh cheeses.
