Lugana Riserva 'Molceo' Azienda Agricola Ottella 75cl

Sale price£25.65


Country: Italy

Region: Veneto

Sub-Region: Lugana

Grapes: Grape Trebbiano di Lugana 100

Tasting Note:

A gentle white from beside Italy's Garda lake, this is

perfumed with spice and ripe lemons that simply intensifies

in the mouth; the texture is lovely, too.


Delicate, soft pressing of the whole bunch for most of the

production, the rest with gentle destemming by oscillation.

Thereafter, a strict protocol of vinification: partial malolactic

fermentation, fining for 16 months on the yeast and fine

lees, which mostly takes place in steel and the rest of the

time in wooden tonneaux and barriques.

Vineyard :

San Benedetto di Lugana, the grapes come from our own

vineyards that are most suitable due to the high content of

white clay. The harvest and selection of the grapes are

done strictly by hand, in small 17 kg. cases. Double bow

Guyot, yield around 8,000 kg. of grapes per hectare,

equivalent to 5,040 litres of wine or 63%. Harvest late in


Food matching:

Stimulating with marine or freshwater fish, it also goes well

with savoury or fatty meat (goose or pork). Interesting with

seasoned and blue cheeses of various kinds and with

elaborate first courses.


‘Complex, long and fascinating,’ began team leader Sarah

Jane Evans MW, who went on to describe a wine that was

‘plump and fleshy, with notes of greengage, gooseberry and

green herbs’, while Savoy Grill’s Matteo Cali enjoyed

‘herbaceous aromas of fresh grass and asparagus, leading

to a fresh palate and a long finish’. Silver Medal, Sommelier
