Lugana "Back to Silence" is the result of experimentation by the Ottella winery, obtained with long maceration on the skins and without filtration, in pure orange wine style. It has an intense aromatic profile, rich and mineral, slightly smoky, with hints of yellow fruit and citrus fruits. The taste is tasty and agile, with light tannins
The Lugana "Back to Silence" from the Ottella winery is produced exclusively with Turbiana, also known as Trebbiano di Lugana, emerging as a true ambassador of a territory that has been rediscovered as a genuine jewel in Italian winemaking. The grapes for "Back to Silence" come from small plots of the winery's vineyards in the best areas of the appellation. In the pure style of orange wine and crafted following traditional processes, this Lugana stands out for its ability to express itself straightforwardly and sincerely, stripped of ostentatious and frivolous nuances.
"Back to Silence" Lugana by Ottella begins its story in late October when the grapes are already well-ripened and ready to be harvested. The richness and complexity expressed in the glass can be attributed to the production methodology: after the fermentation of the Turbiana grapes, using exclusively indigenous yeasts, the winemaking proceeds as if it were a red wine, prolonging skin maceration for at least 20 or 30 days. There is no filtration or addition of sulfites, and the wine is then aged for several months in stainless steel tanks.
Ottella Lugana's "Back to Silence" presents itself in the glass with a sensual golden yellow colour with orange hues. On the nose, it immediately reveals notes of ripe fruit reminiscent of peach and melon, making way for citrusy hints supported by pleasant mineral and smoky undertones. When brought to the palate, one is struck by the coherence of this Lugana, capable of translating the aromatic richness perceived on the nose into explosive flavours in the mouth. Taut and intense, "Back to Silence" bids farewell with a slight tannic vein, creating a sip of great freshness and complexity. Excellent with flavorful and complex dishes, this Orange-style Lugana will satisfy enthusiasts, becoming the absolute star of an evening among friends or a faithful companion when sipped and savoured with sophistication.
