Originating from vineyards that hug the southern shore of Lake Garda, an area shared between the Veneto and Lombardy regions of northern Italy. The lakeside district hosts an unlikely Mediterranean-like climate that nourishes full ripeness and rich fruit flavors. Abate Lugana is made from the native Turbiana grape - believed to be a close relative of Verdicchio. Exclusive use of stainless steel highlights the lushness that is Lugana's hallmark signature.
Tasting Note: Enticingly floral aromas introduce stone and citrus fruit flavors. Medium body, firm acidity with a slightly savory complexity.
Food Pairings: White fish, chicken, rabbit, vegetable dishes and a perfect mate with Asian cuisine.
