Intro: On the southern shores of Lake Garda, in a terrain full of history and considered to be premier cru, stands the ancient Roveglia farmstead. This is the only surviving example in this area of 15th century Lombardy architecture. The surrounding land, hidden under vines, is a terroir whose history goes back 200 million years. It’s the union of the ancient and clay soils with a native vine that produces an extraordinary wine called Lugana.

Description: Lugana is a wine region that straddles the Veneto to the east and Lombardy to the west in northern Italy. The name has many rumored derivations from local dialect and Latin, all essentially meaning “lake in the woods,” referring to its once heavily wooded landscape and location along Lake Garda. Born in the thirties, Tenuta Roveglia boasts the most extensive vineyard in the area of Lugana. Tenuta Roveglia has 125 acres of vineyards within the more than 245 acres of the estate.
Made from 100% Turbiana (AKA Trebbiano) di Lugana.

Vinification: Vinification: soft pressing of the grapes with a maximum extraction of 50% of first-pressing must. Fermentation in stainless steel containers.
Aging: 10 to 12 months in stainless steel containers.
Bottling: in various phases from August to September of the year following the harvest. It is sold after 2 to 3 months of resting in the bottles.

Flavours: It has a particularly rich bouquet where colder, mineral notes harmonize with ones of ripe fruit. Because of its rich aroma with notes of toasty oak and an almond finish.

Food Pairings: Because of its rich aroma with notes of toasty oak and an almond finish, it lends itself as the perfect accompa- niment to fish, pasta dishes, grilled meat and cheese.
