Conchiglia
Lugana DOC

Years ago, when we were working in one of our vineyards, some fossil shells – embedded in stones and rocks - came to light: a characteristic that we decided to recall in the name of this Lugana (“conchiglia” = “shell”), a wine that is “historic” for us because it was the first that we produced.


Grape variety: 100% Turbiana di Lugana 

Type of soil: morainic, with combinations of clays and limestone, rich in mineral salts and fossil shells

Vines per hectare: 5800

It has a pale straw yellow colour, with highlights that tend towards gold as it matures. On the nose its scents recall those of fresh fruit, particularly apples and white peaches; attractive citrusy notes; broad, rounded, full-bodied and well-balanced.

Obtained from vines that are at least 25 years old, with the harvest usually at the end of September.
