Lugana Mandolara is made from 100% Turbiana di Lugana grapes grown on the producer’s vineyars in Peschiera del Garda, one of the Major Communes in the Lugana DOC growing area, located in the province of Verona in the Region of Veneto in Northern Italy. The Lugana DOC straddles the southern edge of the Lago di Garda and includes the Municipalities of Peschiara del Garda, Desenzano, Pozzolengo, Lonato and Sirmione. The appelation’s location on the south side of the lake make it an ideal viticultural zone with rich calcareous clay soils with a high content of saline minerals. The soils composition is what allows the Turbiana grapes to reach both a high level of natural ripeness, which stimulates natural malolactic fermentation, and a high degree of olfactory intensity. The Lugana Bianco DOC specifications require wines to be made with at least 90% Turbiana di Lugana grapes, however most producers use exclusively 100% Turbiana.

In the glass the 2015 Le Morette Lugana Mandolara is a pale straw yellow color. The nose is rich with tropical fruit aromas and hints of citrus, flinty stone and spices. The palate is layered with flavors of fresh pineapple, peaches and apples followed by a beautifully long crisp mineral finish . Pairs well with Fish, Seafood especially Sea Scallops, Risotto Dishes and White Meat.
