The elegant Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva from Tenuta Roveglia shines bright yellow in the glass. If you swirl the wine glass, you can perceive a first-class balance in this white wine, as it is neither watery nor syrupy or liqueur-like on the glass walls. The nose of this Tenuta Roveglia white wine reveals all kinds of white currants, acacia, lime, apples and quinces. As if that wasn't already impressive, the stainless steel ageing process adds roasted almonds, brittle and sun-warmed stone to the mix.
On the palate, the Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva from Tenuta Roveglia starts off wonderfully dry, grippy and aromatic. Some wines are dry on the label, others really are. This white wine belongs to the second group, as it was bottled with only 2.5 g of residual sugar. This silky, dense and crisp white wine is balanced and complex on the palate. Thanks to its lively fruit acidity, the Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva is exceptionally fresh and lively on the palate. The finish of this well-matured white wine from the Veneto wine-growing region, Lugana DOC to be precise, impresses with its remarkable persistence. The finish is also accompanied by mineral facets from the limestone and clay-dominated soils.
Vinification of the Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva from Tenuta Roveglia
This white wine clearly focuses on one grape variety, namely Trebbiano. Only flawless grapes were harvested for this wonderfully balanced single-varietal wine from Tenuta Roveglia. In Veneto, the vines that produce the grapes for this wine grow on clay and limestone soils. Obviously, the Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva is also determined by more than just the Lugana DOC soil. This Italian wine can literally be described as a wine of the Old World, which presents itself in an extraordinarily impressive way. After harvesting, the grapes are transported to the winery as quickly as possible. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. This is followed by fermentation in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures. At the end of this process, the Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva can continue to harmonize on the fine lees for 18 months.
