Guerrieri Rizzardi Lugana is produced in the Lugana DOC, located on the border of Lombardy and Veneto. The region is strategically nestled on the southern shores of Lake Garda, known for its unique lake effect, chalky-clay soils, and the indigenous grape varietal Turbiana, the primary grape used in Guerrieri Rizzardi Lugana.
Lugana DOC boasts a rich history of viticulture and winemaking, with traces of viticulture dating back to the Bronze Age, and the region continued to be well-recognized for quality wines during Roman times. In the modern era, Lugana DOC was one of the first locations in Italy to be awarded DOC status in early 1967.
Guerrieri Rizzardi is a family-owned venture dating back to the 17th century. Through the years, they've successfully pioneered modern winemaking techniques while preserving the traditional characteristics of Lugana wine. Their Lugana DOC Bianco is considered a reference point for the Turbiana varietal.
In your glass, Guerrieri Rizzardi Lugana DOC reveals captivating aromas of ripe peach, lemon zest, and almond blossom, balanced by delicate hints of minerality and fresh herbs. This medium-bodied white features a zippy vibrancy on the palate, providing a counterpoint to the rich white peach, green apple, and citrus flavors.
Seafood, shellfish, white meats, and lighter pasta dishes will pair like a dream, and its ample brightness will also cut through rich, cream-based sauces. The pleasingly balanced fruit and mineral profile will easily complement more delicate preparations of fish and poultry.
Guerrieri Rizzardi Lugana is another perfect choice for warmer weather sipping, thanks to its refreshing brightness and lifted palate. It guarantees a delightful respite from the heat, making it an excellent companion for your outdoor dining and summer festivities.
