WHITE WINE LUGANA 'CONCHIGLIA' CITARI 2021 DESCRIPTION

The Lugana "Vigneto la Conchiglia" from winery Citari is a wine with amazing fruit flavors, which impressed us very much for the intense flavors and aromas evocative of the territory on which it was born: Colle di San Martino, a small fraction of Desenzano del Garda. Among all areas of our country exceptionally suited for the production of wine, Lugana is definitely one of those areas that are distinguishing more: for its micro climate and the many qualities of the mineral soil is the cradle of special fruits and very characteristic wines, which are surprising for their inseparable links with the territory. The Lugana "Vigneto la Conchiglia” is definitely a good example, the result of careful manual selection of grapes, this Lugana bring in the glass the determination and the love with which the cellar Citari produced it, trying to blend the past and the traditions of this area with modern winemaking techniques adopted in the cellar. The result is really great, for it’s elegance and freshness, it’s aroma and finesse. The winery Citari shows a representative witness of the reality in the Lugana area, thanks to its wines, which are a typical expression of these unique terroir.
