Vinification of the Cà Maiol Fabio Contato Lugana
This wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Trebbiano. Only flawless grapes were used for this wonderfully balanced single-varietal wine from Cà Maiol. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Lombardy. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into clay soils. There is no doubt that Fabio Contato Lugana is determined by more than just the Lugana DOC soil. This Italian wine can be described as an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, presenting itself as extraordinarily fragrant. The fact that the Trebbiano grapes thrive in a rather cool climate also has a major influence on the ripeness of the grapes. Among other things, this results in particularly long and even grapes and a rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. The grapes for this white wine from Italy are harvested exclusively by hand at the time of optimum ripeness. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Here they are selected and carefully crushed. Fermentation then takes place in small oak barrels at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by maturation on the fine lees for several months before the wine is finally bottled.
