Pale straw yellow in colour with greenish reflections. The delicate, understated fragrances proffer floral notes mixed with hints of almond. The palate is graceful, well-defined, taut and flavoursome.
The grapes for this wine come from vineyards in the municipality of Pozzolengo, to the south of the Lugana denomination. From the slopes of this medieval village, the Guyot-trained vineyards stretch out as far as the small lake “Mantellina” that lends its name to the wine and to a protected unspoilt area populated by rare animal species (the “Oasis”). Here the clays become sandier and contain considerable gravely elements. These unique clays leave an unmistakable imprint on the Turbiana grapes enhancing the refreshing acidity of this grape variety.
