A perfect balance between tradition and modernity
When it comes to Italian wine, there is a huge selection of varieties and producers. One of the special wines that is a must try is Ottella's Lugana white wine from Veneto. Lugana is a white wine produced exclusively in the Lugana area at the southern end of Lake Garda. There the conditions for growing these grapes are ideal, and Ottella is one of the most famous producers of these noble drops.

Cultivation
The Trebbiano di Lugana grapes, which are used for the Lugana white wine, come mainly from the vineyards on the southern shore of Lake Garda. There, the climate is mild due to the influence of the lake. The soils are mainly clay and limestone, which gives the wines a special minerality. The grapes for Lugana are harvested by hand to ensure that only the best grapes are used for winemaking.

Vinification
Ottella uses both traditional and modern techniques in winemaking to ensure that the Lugana white wine retains its distinctive flavor. The grapes are gently pressed to bring out the best in them. The must is then left to ferment in stainless steel tanks to give the wine its characteristic freshness and acidity. The Lugana is then aged for several months in tanks or even wooden barrels to develop its full flavor and texture.

Terroir
The terroir, that is, the natural conditions of the production area, has a great influence on the taste of Lugana white wine. The combination of the calcareous soils and the mild climate of Lake Garda gives the wine its characteristic minerality and freshness. The terroir of Ottella is also characterized by its proximity to the lake, which favors a certain moisture in the soil and thus promotes the growth of the grapes.

Taste
Ottella's Lugana white wine is a fresh, fruity wine with a lively acidity and a fine mineral finish. The nose is dominated by aromas of citrus and flowers, which combine with notes of apples, pears and peaches on the palate. The wine has a nice texture and a long, pleasant finish. Lugana is a perfect accompaniment to light dishes such as salads, fish and seafood or simply as an aperitif.

Conclusion
Ottella's Lugana white wine is an excellent example of the diversity and quality of Italian wines. The terroir, the winemaking and the long tradition contribute to make this wine a special natural product and therefore a unique drinking experience. - Gerardo [TS03/23]
