Lugana Ca' Perlar
Produced from a single grape, Trebbiano di Lugana, with unique characteristics relating to climate and soil. This pale, straw-coloured wine is packed with concentrated flavours of exotic fruits such as apricots and nectarines and a marvellously full body giving it great balance between richness and freshness.
Trebbiano di Lugana mechanically picked on site, Chardonnay, other old vines.
THE VINEYARD (Geographic location and characteristics)
The vines, located to the South of Lake Garda are situated on hilly, morrainic soil with alluvial deposits which are part chalky part sandy gravel, ideal for this white grape.
THE PLANTING SYSTEM (the method and the density)
Guyot system with approx. 5,000 vines/hectare
HARVESTING (timing and methods)
From mid to end September, the selection is only done manually with the grapes being stored in crates.
The grapes, once collected in crates are left to dry for some time in order to obtain a fullness and elegance which gives them a superior quality. The grape-must undergoes controlled temperature fermentation to maintain the fragrance of the fruit then rests for a brief period in barrique.
