TASTING NOTES
Lugana Franco Visconti bears the name from the family that created the history of Lugana. Growned on the gentle hills of Sirmione, in the heart of Lugana, by Garda Lake, it was one of the first wines made using exclusively the Turbiana grape variety. After many years, it is still made starting from the historic Cru, which, thanks to the particular exposure of the vineyard and its peculiar composition, allows to a wine of great elegance and softness. The selection of the grapes and the slightly long maturation compared to the younger Lugana enrich and complete the sensory profile, connoting it with deep mineral notes and a great aging potential. Brilliant straw yellow, the nose is intense, elegant and particularly fine; the notes of white flowers, combined with the fruity ones, are completed by a marked minerality that fully reflects the typicality of Lugana coming from the Sirmione vineyards. In the mouth it is characterized by character and structure, with notes of white fruit and a typical vegetable scent, well balanced by a homogeneous savory note. Naturally paires dishes based on lake fish, both baked and boiled, but also pasta with lobster, pasta with sardines, white meats, tasty soups, vegetable dishes. It is recommended to be served at a cool temperature, around 12° C.

Antica Casa Visconti

Antica Casa Visconti Discover the Antica Casa Visconti on Lake Garda and its fine wines in our online store The Visconti family has its roots on Lake Garda for about a century. From the very beginning, they established a close link with the territory, believing in Turbiana vine potential, a native grape already growing in the area even before Lugana . The passion of the Visconti family let the spread of this vine throughout the southern area of Benaco, between Lombardy and Veneto, until it became the most important white berried grape of these territories. The production of Lugana wine is linked to the history of the Visconti family, so much that this name strongly recalls the origin of this white wine. In particular, the Lugana Visconti is one of the most important symbols of the city of Desenzano del Garda. It is proposed with pride and affection by most of the historic places in the city center. In the early 2000s, after decades of activity in the wine sector, the Visconti decided to direct their entrepreneurial activity towards other paths, giving it as an inheritance to another historical family that has always dedicated itself to viticulture, the Formentini family.
