Let's discover Lugana Superiore Wine and the amazing territory it comes from, squeezed between two beautiful Italian regions.
Today we are going to talk about Lugana Superiore produced in the incredible Lugana territory that develops along the south of Lake Garda, between two provinces (Brescia and Verona) and between two regions (Lombardy and Veneto); a truly magical territory delimited by the beautiful Brescian towns of Sirmione, Pozzolengo, Desenzano, Lonato and the Veronese town of Peschiera del Garda.
In order to be defined ‘Lugana Superiore’ on a label, a wine must undergo a period of aging or refinement of at least one year from the harvest.
It has a varied and complex profile: the color has golden reflections; the scents are articulated, offering hints of field grasses, chlorophyll, ripe apple, citrus (tangerine in primis), combined with notes of hazelnut or spices with the passage in the wood (today less and less new and toasted, and larger in capacity);
Lugana Superiore is a perfect match for even the most complex dishes, such as pike in sauce, grilled eel, but also grilled shellfish and some white meat dishes such as chicken, capon and rabbit.
