Winery: Ca' Lojera
Region: Lombardia (Lombardy)
Locale: Sirmione (Brescia) Italy
In a few words: White wine with a colour range spanning from brilliant straw yellow to marked greenish highlights, with golden reflections with ageing. It has a pleasant bouquet of melons and tangerines with mint accents and some floral notes on the nose and a strong fruity personality on the palate.
Site: White Lugana clay, relatively flat, south shore of Lago di Garda’s original watershed.
Grapes: 100% Turbiana, hand harvested only from the estate’s vineyards
Fermentation and Aging: Settled in stainless steel and bottled in the spring following the vintage.
Notes: About 80K bottles produced. Turbiana is also known as Trebbiano di Lugana, and has no relationship to the Trebbiano found in Tuscany and other areas of central and southern Italy. The wine shows a lovely saline minerality which is typical for top Lugana.
