Ottella: tradition and innovation in Lugana wines
In the heart of picturesque Lake Garda lies the renowned Ottella winery, a testament to the rich history and dynamic innovation of the Lugana wine region. Founded with a vision deeply rooted in the region, Ottella's path embodies the essence of Italian winemaking, where tradition meets modernity to produce exquisite wines that beguile the senses.

The name Ottella itself has a profound meaning, as it derives from 'ott', which means eight in Italian. This reference to the eight children, symbolizing abundance and prosperity, reflects the winery's commitment to family values and heritage.

The Lugana Ottella
At the heart of Ottella's range is Lugana, a flagship wine known for its incomparable quality and distinctive character. Produced with great care, Lugana embodies the essence of the region and captures the essence of its terroir in every sip. With its youthful liveliness and refreshing acidity, Lugana seduces with notes of ripe fruit, delicate spices and subliminal mineral nuances. It is a wine that speaks of tradition and innovation, conveying the taste of the land and the art of winemaking.

Lugana & Le Creete
Young wines such as Lugana and Lugana Le Creete have an exclusive, tasty and tangy freshness that is so typical of Ottella. This wonderful and unique taste is reminiscent of fruit, spices and minerals. The salt and racy acidity add energy and flavor, culminating in refined and seductive aromas. But it is with the right age that the good-natured soul of Lugana really comes into its own.

Nasomatto & Back to Silence
In recent years, Ottella has expanded its portfolio with two remarkable new additions: Nasomatto and Back to Silence. These wines complement the core production of Lugana and offer new dimensions of flavor and complexity. Nasomatto, with its bold expression and intense aromatics, challenges the senses with layers of depth and intrigue. Back to Silence, on the other hand, pays homage to the winery's roots and conveys a sense of calm and harmony with every sip.

Spumante
In addition to the still wines, Ottella has also ventured into the area of sparkling wines and produces two exceptional spumante varieties. The Lugana Spumante captures the essence of the region's terroir and sparkles with elegance and finesse. The rosé version, on the other hand, brings a touch of romance and allure, combining delicate fruity notes with a refined effervescence.

The Montresor brothers
The bet that Lodovico Francesco and Michele Montresor made in the Lugana area is based on the serious consideration that fine wines must have a name, which means that they must be recognizable. This thought process begins with the creation of wines that, despite their modern vinification, consider the connection between 'soil and vineyard' as a single entity.

From this point of view, it is the symbiosis of vines and the corresponding soil that produces a pure and spectacular wine. A wine that brilliantly expresses the often praised 'terroir'.

At Ottella, winemaking is more than just a craft; it is a passion that is closely linked to the land and its heritage. Each bottle tells a story of tradition and innovation, of family values and the pursuit of excellence. As the sun sets over the rolling hills of Lake Garda, Ottella stands as a beacon of Italian winemaking, where the past merges with the future and every sip is a journey of discovery and pleasure. - Gerardo [TS03/24]
