Lugana "Limne" - a fragrant semi-dry white wine, to create which the producer uses Trebbiano di Lugana grapes grown in vineyards at an altitude of 50 meters above sea level, located in unusually favorable climatic conditions south of Lake Garda. The clay-calcareous soils of the region are rich in mineral salts. Harvesting is carried out manually and takes place in the third decade of September. At the winery, the fruits are delicately pressed, the maximum extraction of grape must is about 60%. Fermentation is carried out in steel tanks with constant temperature control. Wine is aged in stainless steel tanks for 4-5 months, after which it is bottled and ripens for another 2-3 months in bottles in the cellars of the winery.
The family-owned winery Tenuta Roveglia is located on lands where magnificent wines were produced even in ancient Rome, and the walls of the Cascina Roveglia estate, built in the 15th century, still contain a piece of the history of those times. Currently, the estate covers an area of more than 100 hectares, of which almost 50 hectares are magnificent vineyards. Vineyards, planted mainly with vines of Trebbiano di Lugana variety, are divided on clay-calcareous soils of the coast, in a mild climate, which contributes to excellent ripening of the crop. The owners of the estate have always paid special attention to the care of the vineyards, thanks to which they manage to grow high-quality grapes, which enjoys an excellent reputation. Wine production is strictly limited. The philosophy of Tenut Rovel is to produce quality wines, while sacrificing quantity.
