Popular, coveted, ready for you
The D.O.C. seal of quality lines the labels of the best Lugana wines. And not without reason. The fresh and dry white wine is considered one of the flagships of Italian wine. Locally vinified and popular worldwide, the approximately 160 winegrowers, on an area of about 700 hectares, hardly keep up with the great demand. The strict requirements are one reason why Lugana wine leaves the province between Lombardy and Veneto only in small quantities. Therefore, you can quickly and cheaply secure your exquisite selection of wonderful Lugana wines, also as a wine pack, and enjoy a piece of holiday wherever and whenever you like.
The Lugana wine growing area is nestled in the hills around the beautiful city of Sirmione. Here the indigenous and ancient grape variety Trebbiano finds ideal soils and mild climate, which give the white wine its incomparable liveliness and vital fruit acidity. Trebbiano, also Trebbiano di Soave or Trebbiano di Lugana, make up at least 90% of Lugana wine. Furthermore, only local grape varieties may be added to comply with the strict guidelines of the Lugana D.O.C.. The cuvée from Trebbiano and Chardonnay is therefore also very popular. The success of the best Lugana white wines has existed for years and holds a firm place in the tastes of the world.
Dolce Vita - dry Lugana
In the straw-yellow to greenish body, minerale influences harmonize with fruity hints, which together produce a soft and lively white wine. Fruity notes of apricot, pear, apple and citrus complement aromatic notes of nuts, rose and grass. After just a few seconds in the glass, a floral bouquet rises into the nose and releases the vital fruit acid, which can be discovered in the long aftertaste after the first sip. The relatively low alcohol content of about 11 to 13% vol. together with the high sugar content makes you want more and serves as an exquisite thirst quencher on sunny days.
