This excellent wine is produced exclusively from the Turbiana grape, which grows in the narrow strip of land on the shore of Garda Lake.
Lugana Mandolara has got a pale straw-yellow colour, with green reflections. Its characteristic balanced bouquet is pleasant and fresh, with floral characteristics. The palate is attractively fruity, with apple and peach hints characterised, at the end, by a trace of bitter almonds. Its delicate and light flavour make it the perfect companion with a wide range of dishes from hors d’oeuvres to fish.
