Sensory impressions
A rather intense straw colour with brilliant greenish hues, it is endowed with a fine, elegant nose, floral of yellow gorse and mauve wisteria flowers, followed by pleasant almond and mineral notes. The palate, perfectly balanced, has good alcohol content and a gentle acidity, leading on to the same “gravelly” impressions detected on the nose. The finish is very clean, long and sapid, with some citrus notes and a delicate hint of almond.

Serving temperature
6-8° C.

Recommended food pairings
When young, Lugana pairs well with both lake- and sea-fish dishes: fried anchovies, boiled sea bass and prawns; riper bottles are the ideal complement for oilier fish and more sophisticated dishes: broiled eel, roasted tench, mussel impepata and grilled lobster. At its peak, it makes a most successful match with white meat, especially roasted rabbit.

Longevity
2-3 years.
