We have been Lugana lovers for years, so we were excited to find out about “Destination Lugana” – a two-week event that continues through June 22 in New York. That’s when Lugana DOC wines will flow from Lake Garda, Italy, to New York restaurants in celebration of this incredible wine region. Lugana Turbiana checks all our boxes for beautiful white wine – mineral-driven, elegant and complex, with citrus, salinity and refreshing acidity. Now, if you live in New York or are planning to visit this month, you have the opportunity to taste it for yourself at Destination Lugana, made possible by the Consorzio Tutela Lugana DOC.
Here are our favorite wines in 2022 – Part 3. You might recall that in early January we revealed our favorite 20 wines last year. We compiled the list after tasting hundreds of wines in 2022. These 20 wines made a lasting impression. However, we simply published a list of the wines, with links to their wineries. Therefore, over the next few weeks, we will be sharing more details about these wines. Read on for Part 3. Continue reading
We opened a bottle of Ottella wine from Lugana on Christmas Day, and another on New Year’s Eve. But really, these wines from the Turbiana grape are perfect all year round. Ottella has been producing them since 1905 – the first and only Veronese producer of Lugana at that time. They check all our boxes for beautiful white wine – mineral-driven, elegant and complex, with citrus, salinity and refreshing acidity. Consequently, these two Ottella wines — Le Creete and Lugana DOC — shine with personality and character. They are versatile, approachable, age-worthy and food-friendly.
