Producer Note
Ancilla Lugana is located on the shores of Lake Garda in North East Italy. The estate
comprises two vineyards: La Ghidina, located in Lugana di Sirmoine, the heart of the
production area of some of the most elegant whites in Italy; and Cadellora, situated
in Villafranca di Verona. Run by Luisella Benedetti, the third generation of women to
run this estate, who inherited the farm from her mother, who inherited in turn from her
mother, named Ancilla. Ancilla was an extraordinary, energetic woman, who
worked the fields and got up at 3am every day to make her wine producing dream
come true. Following in the footsteps of her grandmother, Luisella gave up her
career in finance and took over the family business in the early 2000s. The lifelong
commitment of her grandmother and mother is a passion now shared by Luisella,
which is clear to see in this exciting and pure collection of Lugana wines.


Vintage
2018 presented excellent growing conditions in the Veneto, with a wet spring
followed by a warm, dry summer. Cooler conditions with some rain just preceding
the harvest enabled the grapes to develop good concentration of flavours and
balancing acidity.


Vineyard
The grape variety Turbiana is also known as the Trebbiano di Lugana, but not to be
confused with the Trebbiano found elsewhere in Italy. Research indicates that it is
more likely to have a genetic similarity to Verdicchio and is one of the few native
grapes capable of ageing. The vineyard is situated in Ghidina, Lombardy, where the
vines are between 11 and 14 years old. Grown in lime, clay and limestone soils, the
vines are trained on a vertical trellis system with replacement cane pruning. The
vineyard is farmed using Integrated Pest Management to reduce the need for
pesticides.


Winemaking
The grapes were destemmed and lightly pressed, followed by cold maceration on
the skins for eight hours. A slow fermentation took place in steel tanks at low
temperatures retaining the refreshing characteristics of the wine. It was aged on its
fine lees, in stainless steel tanks for six months, imparting texture and complexity. The
wine then saw further bottle ageing for one month, prior to release.


Tasting Note
Bright and fruity with attractive aromas of yellow fruits, grapefruit and ripe citrus.
Crisp, refreshing and balanced, with a hint of minerality on the palate and a
lingering finish.
