Turbiana grapes for this wine are hand-harvested from a narrow strip of land on the shore of Garda Lake. Soft crushing and temperature controlled fermentation are crucial to the creation of Lugana Mandolara. Colour is pale straw-yellow colour, with green reflections. Its characteristic balanced bouquet is  pleasant and fresh with white flowers. Fruit dictates the palate with apple and peach notes and, on the finish, a trace of bitter almonds. Its delicate and light flavour makes it the perfect companion with a wide range of dishes from hors d’oeuvres to fish. Recommended serving temperature is 10° C; uncork immediately before serving
