Lugana is a small area in the hinterland of the southern coast of Lake Garda, that goes from Desenzano through Sirmione and Peschiera to the Pozzolengo and Lonato districts. The wite wine Lugana D.o.c. is produced in a landscape of unique beauty, which is famous all over the world for its wonderful view over the Lake Garda blue waters, surrounded by the Alps in the background. The Trebbiano vine of Lugana distinctly differs from all other Italian Trebbiani. It is brilliantly clear, typically straw yellow in colour, but with sharp greenish tinges that become golden when the wine is aged.
It is suitable for appetisers, excellent with Italian starters, and with the Garda Lake fish, especially with white fish and eels. Best served at a temperature of around 8-10° C
