Ottella Lugana Le Crete
The grapes for Ottella Lugana Le Crete come from our own vineyard, Le Creete, 12 hectares in the heart of Lugana, marked by a high white clay content.
Gentle, soft crushing of whole bunches is used for most of our production, while the rest is lightly de-stemmed by oscillation. Then follows a strict wine-making process: racking off the lees by natural settling, slow fermentation at a controlled temperature (14°/18°C); ageing for 6-8 months on fine lees.
Turbiana (Trebbiano di Lugana) grapes are used to make this wine.
The wine is intense golden yellow. Pervasive on the nose with immediate exotic hints of pineapple and notes of grapefruit. It unfolds pleasantly with a remarkable mineral sensation. It is a wine with character and great aromatic elegance. On the palate, it is full, warm and velvety with a very persistent finish. Enjoy its unique complexity and balanced structure with an extraordinary aromatic persistence.
