2021 Ca' Maiol "Prestige" Lugana DOP
The Cà Maiol winery was founded in 1967 amid Lake Garda's beautiful scenic and lush region.
This Lugana Prestige summarizes in its name the mix of top-quality elements that give it its special personality: clay-rich soil that is unique of its kind; the mild microclimate of Lake Garda; and the aristocratic indigenous Turbiana variety, which yields grapes with very particular typical characteristics. The grape selection for the production of Prestige takes place exclusively in the fairly mature Turbiana vineyards of the Maiolo property, the principal site of the Cà Maiol Estate.
Straw yellow with golden reflections, this wine offers green apple, lime, and wild thyme perfumes. On opening releases aromas of oats and white pepper. On the palate, it is pleasant and soft and in perfect equilibrium with all its components. There is a mineral finish. This wine pairs perfectly with appetizers, raw fish, and seafood by itself or in pasta or risotto. It is a delicate wine with a long, tangy flavor, obtained by soft pressing and fermentation in stainless steel; it is ready for drinking after a brief maturation in bottle, in the spring of the year following the vintage.
