This type of Lugana wine is obtained with over-ripening on the plant. The grapes are harvested between the end of October and the beginning of November.
Late harvest grapes are more concentrated, giving Lugana a softer character well balanced thanks to its acidity.
Sparkling Lugana wine
The sparkling version has been present in the production specification since 1975 and represents a consolidated tradition.
Lugana spumante is produced both with the Charmat method and with the classic method.
