Villa Della Torre’s Lugana is a wine that is both lively and light, but also structured and deep. Our interpretation aims to enhance the characteristics that combine freshness with complexity due to 6 months of aging on the fine lees. In the glass, the wine is bright yellow with golden highlights. The nose delivers a salvo of white flowers, citrus fruits, and aromatic herbs, while on the palate, the savory note and intense minerality heighten a very satisfying acidity; the persistent finish recalls the aromas of sweet almond. With bottle aging, it will evolve and take on the sort of complexity that only fine, characterful wines can offer.
This is an appetizer wine par excellence but it also pairs well with lake and sea fish dishes, savory pies made with ricotta and wild herbs, as well as roasted, grilled, and spit-roasted white meats. Our Lugana by Villa Della Torre is also a perfect match with the most important and creative dishes of various Oriental cuisines.
