 ABOUT THIS WINE

This excellent wine is produced exclusively from the Turbiana grapes, that grow in the narrow strip of land on the shore of Garda Lake. After a very soft crushing, and thermo-controlled vinification, we obtain this elegant wine. Lugana Mandolara has got a pale straw-yellow colour, with green reflections. Its characteristic balanced bouquet is pleasant and fresh, with flower sensations. At taste it is attractively fruity, with apple and peach hints characterized, at the end, by a trace of bitter almonds. 

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Founded by Gino Zenato in the early 60’s, the company was originally born as a vine nursery for the production of vines intended for viticulture. From the very beginning, Gino also started producing his own wine as a first-hand test of his nursery activity.

In 1981 Gino’s son, Valerio, stepped into the company and enriched the production with wines of strong character. Thanks to his efforts, he was recognised for his achievements and set the company toward a quality production. His wines stood out for their marked minerality, structure and by a strong identity showing all the characteristics of its terroir, revisited according to an elegant and refined style. Caratteristiche tipiche del territorio, interpretate secondo uno stile elegante e raffinato.

Fabio and Paolo, the third generation of winegrowers, continue the family tradition with the same passion and enthusiasm as their grandfather, managing the business side by side with Valerio and looking forward to a future of new challenges and new markets. Today, the company includes several plots in the areas of Peschiera, Desenzano and Pozzolengo and it’s well rooted in solid family traditions.

Le Morette is considered one of the historic wineries of the Lugana DOC appellation, being in the territory for over sixty years now. The new winery, first opened 10 years ago, is now about to be expanded in order to provide adequate spaces for the new bottling facility, reflecting the winery’s focus on innovation and production efficiency while ensuring the most authentic expression of its territory.
