Lugana DOC

   Lugana DOC
DOC for dry white wine in the border area between the two regions of Lombardy and Veneto in Italy. It is named after the plain of the same name, a glacial basin at the south end of Lake Garda (Lago di Garda), which stretches from the province of Brescia (Lombardy) across to the province of Verona (Veneto). The lake has a positive effect in regulating the climate. The zone has a total vineyard area of around 700 hectares, and includes the communes of Desenzano del Garda, Pozzolengo and Sirmione (Brescia), as well as Peschiera del Garda (Verona). The wine has a yellow-straw colour with greenish tinges, and it very similar to Soave. It is made from Trebbiano di Lugana = Trebbiano di Soave (90-100%), as well as optionally from other permitted white varieties (up to 10%). If it has a minimum alcohol level of 12% vol it may be called a Superiore. A Spumante is also produced.
