Descrizione

A superb example of the maximum expression of wine from Lake Garda, a perfect combination of the Turbiana grape variety and the terroir: a Lugana Riserva of great character.

Informazioni


Tasting Note


Brilliant golden highlights characterize this harmonious wine, along with its intense, evolved aromas. The rich bouquet blends together fresh, mineral notes with those of ripe yellow fruit, and the concentrated flavor combines floral and citrusy sensations with delicate honeyed notes and an elegant aftertaste of vanilla and walnuts. The finish is long and mouth-filling, intriguing and persistent.



Serving Suggetions


It may be enjoyed simply enhancing the typical flavors of Lake Garda: some toasted bread drizzled with a little extra virgin olive oil and aromatized with grated lemon zest, basil leaves and a few olives. Its rich flavor suggests pairing it – apart from with freshwater fish – with pasta dishes, moderately mature cheeses, and also meat main courses.



Origin

The Tommasi family’s vineyards at Sirmione, planted with high-density, Guyot-trained vines.
One parcel of vines is on limestone-based soil, with varied stratification and a substantial clay content; the other two have a sandier composition and are rich in loam. The grapes selected from the clayey soil confer body and structure; the sandy soil, on the other hand, gives aroma and elegance.


Grape

Turbiana 100%


Vinification and Maturation


After manual harvesting and the selection of the finest bunches, a delicate, soft pressing of the whole clusters takes place. There is a strict vinification protocol: fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 10/12 days then the 25% refines in 500 L French oak barrels and 75% in stainless steel tanks for 18 months, before being blended together, bottled, and kept for a further six months in bottle.

Vineyard

Guyot-owned vineyards in Desenzano del Garda planted with a high density. One parcel is on a calcareous soil, variously stratified and clayey, the other two has a more sandy composition and it is rich in silt. The selection of the grapes from the clay soil gives body and structure, the sandy soil instead gives aroma and elegance.
