Libiam Lugana

For the cultivation of the vineyards, the company does not use herbicides, works according to the methods established by European legislation, and strictly adheres to the agri-environmental measure 10 for sustainability and respect for the environment. The fruit for this wine is planted at 70-80 meters above sea level and planted at a density of 3600-4000 plants per hectare. The characteristic composition of the soil, clayey and rich in mineral salts, the mild climate and the proximity of the lake, contribute to obtaining a high quality wine production. Trebbiano di Lugana is a species of indigenous vine with very ancient origins, probably from the area between Verona and Brescia, known in Italy since Roman times. The grapes after careful manual harvesting in small boxes, are subjected to a soft squeezing followed by traditional vinification methods and temperature controlled fermentation designed to best enhance the aromas and flavours. Aged for 4-5 months in the tank and 2-3 months in the bottle, prior to release. Wonderfully floral nose with citrus and peach notes that invite you into the glass. On the palate it is mouth-filling and almost creamy, with flavours of soft peach, lemon peel and apple as well as tropical notes on the finish.
