Lugana DOC Le Fornaci is not only a great harmonious and long-living white wine, but also a slender taste that brings out a unique territorial culture, rich in peculiarities and privileged for its advantageous position. From both plots of limestone-based soils and sandy soils located in the vineyards in Sirmione - the southern shore of Lake Garda -, this wine is an expression of Turbiana in purity, with full balance and great elegance. Sustainability, integrated production and the use of natural products for agriculture in compliance with the protection of environmental resources are the most important drivers of the vineyards’ management. Harvest is made by night, preserving firm and juicy berries which, thanks to a controlled temperature fermentation, amplify the fruit and terroir notes. The sip thus fluctuates between the freshness of the green apple, the acidulous tension of grapefruit, the roundness of acacia flowers, moving curiosity towards an olfactory, full, aromatic, deeply seductive intensity.
A perfect label for all occasions and for multiple combinations. We tasted it with tomatoes stuffed with Roccaverano robiola cheese flavored with basil.
