The famous Trebbiano grape serves as the basis of Lugana. It is believed to be one of the oldest continuously cultivated grape varieties. It is helped by the fact that it is not at all demanding, but can nevertheless pick up a lot of aromas and minerals. These characteristics, combined with the local conditions, create a particularly coloured grape, which provides a fruity flavour with minimal tannins. This wonderfully light wine is growing in popularity all over the world. Even without maturing in the barrel.
The LUGANA DOC is an excellent example of the benefits of the Trebbiano grape and the province of Brescia. The natural colour, permeated with golden-yellow reflections, is reminiscent of wonderfully sunny days in Italy. That ambience is supported by a slightly earthy, mineral nose with a very mild aroma. Subtle notes of apple and hazelnut fill in the background. Floral and subtly fruity notes, together with a hint of bitter almond, dominate the palate.
The intense, acidic flavour makes LUGANA DOC a perfect wine to enjoy throughout the year. Thanks to its powerful texture, it goes wonderfully with veal, fish, poultry, fruit, cheese and salad. But it is also an impressive accompaniment to roast pork.
Once you are south of Lake Garda, it is not far to the viticulture region of Lugana. It is located in the province of Brescia, which covers parts of both Lombardy and Veneto. The soil there is very chalky, dry and gravelly. This special landscape and the warm breezes that blow over from Lake Garda create the ideal foundation for a very aromatic wine.
