Lugana "Conchiglia" is a soft white wine, light and easy to drink, of immediate pleasantness, born on the morainic lands near Lake Garda. The nose has delicate scents of fresh white fruit and citrus fruits. On the palate it shows freshness, elegance, simplicity and balance
Citare's Lugana "Conchiglia" was born in San Martino della Battaglia, a locality overlooking Lake Garda near the tower erected in memory of the Risorgimento event that started the uprisings for the Unification of Italy. The family-run winery began to see the first production processes around 1975, even though a few years earlier, grandfather Francesco Gettulli had begun cultivating and caring for the land in this area. The passion and art of winemaking have been handed down to his daughter Giovanna, who in turn has inspired his children Maria Giovanna and Francesco: the latter today successfully manages the family business, always with an eye to the future.
The vineyards of Citare's Lugana "Conchiglia" extend over an area of approximately 21 hectares under vine, all facing south, an ideal position for absorbing sunlight for several hours of the day, a condition that guarantees excellent and complete ripening of the grapes. The soil is composed mainly of clay and limestone with a good presence of mineral salts for a final product with an elegant structure and, at the same time, character. The work between the rows is attentive to sustainability, thanks to the decision not to use chemicals, herbicides and pesticides and to support the natural growth and development phases of the plants. The grapes are harvested manually with an immediate selection of the best bunches. In the cellar, fermentation takes place in steel, and the wine matures seven months on fine lees.
To the eye, Citare's Lugana "Conchiglia" is straw yellow with greenish reflections; the aromas are reminiscent of ripe, juicy yellow-fleshed fruit such as apple and white peach, with hints of citrus on the finish. On the palate, it has good elegance and a particular refinement with a final freshness that balances everything and makes for a pleasant drink. In pairing, it is recommended with clam dishes with pasta dishes, fried fish and pizza margherita. A unique product to share on the Christmas Eve table with a lean menu, to enjoy together a wine that is the fruit of careful and passionate work.
