The grapes for this wine come from the estate vineyards in San Benedetto di Lugana - vineyards that are most suitable due to the high content of white clay.

Intense straw yellow color with green tinges. Exotic notes, candied and citrus fruits, fine and elegant minerality. Warm and deep on the nose. Expressive finesse, rich and persistent texture on the palate.

I Wine Review"Light straw color. The Lugana Blanco reveals pleasant scents of grapefruit. It's a bright, fresh clean wine with good flavor concentration of quince, citrus, and herbs. It finishes with excellent length. Made from the Turbiano grape, a clone of Trebbiano di Lugana."

2012 Ottella Lugana Bianco - 3 Stars - Washington Post

Washington Post"Trebbiano is a white grape usually made into cheap, innocuous wines. The Ottella is neither. Rather, it is an example of what the grape can be when the viticulture is careful. With apricot and quince flavors, plus a little tangerine and lemon thyme, the wine is ideal for a weekend brunch on the patio or a first course of seafood salad. This is new to the D.C.-area market, but I hope it becomes a standard. 12.5 percent."
