Lugana Bianco, a name we currently find on many wine lists, which stands as a fixed term for a certain type of wine – and usually stands for good quality. Behind it lies a mostly very soft, almost creamy, yet fresh spring and summer wine.
The DOP Lugana stands exclusively for a white wine vinified from the regional clone of Trebbiano, the Trebbiano di Lugana, a synonym of the Trebbiano di Soave. However, the soils in the DOP Lugana at the southwestern tip of Lake Lake Lake are strongly volcanically over-embossed and give the wines a little more aroma than the Soave is usually willing to develop. What the simple Lugana Bianco of Pratello already suggests is surpassed by the mineral and floral Lugana Catulliano.
But what a surprise when, during a visit to the Cantina in the middle of a small historical village centre, you are presented with the entire range of wine selection (and the fruit purees cooked with love). On the paths of the Amarone di Valpolicella, wines from Cabernet Sauvignon (Ripudiato) and the Rebo grape (Nero per Sempre) are similarly pressed here. The Rebo is a cross between Merlot and the Teroldego grape, whose origin lies in the Valtellinatal Valley. The wines are deep, black-berry, slightly sweet powerhouses that call for an opulent meal, which should be continued with a cosy get-together among friends.
Despite all the skill in the cantina, Vincenzo irrevocably insists that good wines are not made in its cellar, but are exclusively the result of the careful and organic management of the vineyards.
