This wine is produced exclusively by the selection of the “Turbiana” grapes, chosen
from those exposed the most to sunlight. After the harvesting these grapes remain in
contact with the must for one day at low temperature, to get particularly fruity and
aromatic sensations. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature to obtain a
slow fermentation, to get a high quality wine. Lugana Benedictus has a pale strawyellow
colour, with gold reflections. Its flavour is fresh with intense exotic fruity
sensations and hints of spice, due to the oak fermentation and ageing in small oak
Its particular flavour make it a perfect companion with several kinds of cuisine from
fish to delicate rice dishes, and white meat preparations.
Recommended serving temperature is 12-14°C,
with large glasses.
Obtained exclusively from “Turbiana” grapes, which are
