Lugana has a very intense bouquet yet elegant and well balanced. The palate is dry, fresh extremely pleasant.
Lugana wine was a white wine of old origin but almost unknown outside its small production area( the southern coast of lake Garda, on the border between two regions and two provinces: Lombardia and Veneto, Brescia and Verona). It has been discovered by wine lovers no more than 15-20 years ago and is now becoming more and more popular, in Italy and abroad. Thanks to its structure, Lugana is one of the few white wines that can age. A good Lugana wine can easily be stored for 4, 5 years, longer if aged in barrels before bottling it. You can find Lugana wine served as aperitif in all wine bars in Verona. It is also perfect with antipasti (typical Italian hors-oeuvres), cured meat, salami, fresh cheese. In lake Garda best restaurants it is often paired with lake trout, eel and coregone dishes. Ideal service temperature of 8/10° C (47/50°F).
