Description

Just like the consummate host who knows how to put every guest at ease, Lugana is the harmonious white wine that appeases demanding palates with delicate, refreshing aromas, and memorable flavor and body. Coming from a heritage of age-worthy reds, we see the noble Lugana Le Fornaci, from the shores of Lake Garda as our alter-ego premium white wine. Lugana Le Fornaci is a blend from the separate vinification of two vineyards with very different soil compositions. Each of them contributes to completing a balanced wine that has much to tell, especially after a few extra years in the cellar.

Information

Serving Suggestions

Ideal as an aperitif, with appetizers and finger food, it enhances preparations based on lake and sea fish. Excellent with savory first courses, risotto, delicate meats and with fresh cheeses.


Origin

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.

Lugana Le Fornaci is obtained from an accurate harvest of the grapes, followed by slow fermentation at controlled temperature (14°/18°C) and stripping by natural sedimentation. Aging for about 3 months on lees and fine yeasts followed by aging in steel.
