Lugana il Gruccione 2019 Nunzio Ghiraldi

Variety: Turbiana 100%

Straw yellow in color.

The nose has remarkable and very fine aromas of white flowers, yellow peach, almond, and some ideas that recall iodine. Neither wide nor narrow, the ensemble of aromas is wonderfully balanced. He does not let himself go to the cloying presence of notes of ripe exotic fruit, and to the surprising tomato leaf, a prevailing trace in some “Lugana”, which have very little of Turbiana in purity, but not even the aseptic absence of perfumes of others. If it is true that in media stat virtus, Nunzio Ghiraldi’s Lugana il Gruccione is the virtue par excellence.

On the palate, if it were possible, it becomes even better, with a minerality made up of a thousand and a thousand points, which rest on the tongue with kindness and elegance. Palate is enveloped in a velvety freshness, for an overall pleasantness without compromise. The volume expressed by the softness is excellent.

The synthesis of the three senses is concentrated in a score that reaches excellence by conquering 90/100. Splendid vintage results in a wine that has the greatest ability to evolve over time, improving year after year for over a decade. To drink immediately and to set aside to observe its evolution.

Lugana il Gruccione 2019 Nunzio Ghiraldi

Nunzio Ghiraldi farm extends for about 20 hectares of vineyards, around the winery, in Lugana di Sirmione, in the absolute best area for the production of Lugana. Extreme proximity of the vineyards to Lake Garda gives the grapes all the benefits of the mild climate that is created in the area.

The soil is composed of predominantly calcareous layered white clay, created during the last glaciation, the Wurmiana. When the retreat began, the friction created by the slowly moving glacier crumbled the stones and shaped that very particular clay that makes up over 50% of the soil and finally Lake Garda. In the subsoil we also find a considerable presence of mineral salts.

The training system is counter-espalier with guyot pruning with double overturned arch.

Vines have an age ranging from 15 to over 50 years.

The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand, and the grapes are pressed whole with the presence of the rachis.

Fermentation takes place in stainless steel containers with strict temperature control.

Refine in the same stainless steel containers for at least 6 months and at least another 3 in the bottle before reaching the market.
