Lugana has been for years Italy’s best kept oenological secret, but today this structured yet graceful white wine enjoys a growing number of admirers around the world. Lugana’s vertical rise, fuelled by increasing consumer demand, has doubled sales in the last years, generated intense investments in cutting edge technology and increased planting by already established producers in the denomination. It is made of Turbiana grapes grown for the most part in low-lying plains in dense, lightly coloured clay soil that covers a bed of mineral rich glacial moraine. The compact soil and the Mediterranean microclimate lead to concentrated flavours, rich texture and full body with a great ageing potential. Come and discover more about this pearl of Northern Italy’s viticulture during SommCon 2019 in San Diego, with the wine educator and Lugana’s brand ambassador and wine educator Laura Donadoni.
