Lugana Sant’Onorata 1953 2017 Nunzio Ghiraldi

Variety: Turbiana 100%

Straw yellow color.

The nose is exciting! It has precise and very fine aromas, denoting class and elegance. The sensations evoked are of gentle flowers, peach, medlar and yellow plum. Citrus fruits are highlighted with cedar and bergamot. Even the notes of seaweed, and sea water driven by the wind.

On the palate, it is wonderfully balanced, with remarkable creaminess that envelops the mouth with volume and thickness, and at the same time a remarkable structure. The minerality is prestigious, noticeable without much research, which together with the acidity, help the drinkability and in perspective the longevity of the wine. The aromas picked up by the nasal receptors are of honey of locust, and of mimosa.

On the whole we are faced with a great interpretation of Lugana, who manages to stand out for Elegance with a capital Elle.

Lugana Sant’Onorata 1953 2017 Nunzio Ghiraldi

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

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

The training system is a counter espalier with a double arched guyot guyot pruning.

Vines are over 60 years old.

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

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

It refines in the same stainless steel containers for at least 1 year and at least 3 more in the bottle before reaching the market.
