Located in a splendid position, in the locality of Pilandro, a few steps from Desenzano del Garda, La Rifra is a family-run winery present in the area since the seventies, which has always shown great attention to quality, from the methods of cultivation of grapes up to the production of wines.
La Rifra is an agricultural company that deals with viticulture and wine production, dedicating itself in particular to the enhancement of the territory and the production of wines.
For the cultivation of the vineyards, the company does not use herbicides, works according to the methods established by European legislation, and strictly adheres to the agri-environmental measure 10 for sustainability and respect for the environment.
Sourced from vines over 40 years old, at 70-80 meters above sea level and planted at a density of 4000 plants per hectare. The characteristic composition of the soil, clayey and rich in mineral salts, the mild climate and the proximity of the lake, contribute to obtaining a high quality wine production.
Trebbiano di Lugana is a species of indigenous vine with very ancient origins, probably from the area between Verona and Brescia, known in Italy since Roman times.
The grapes after careful manual harvesting in small boxes, are subjected to a soft squeezing followed by traditional vinification methods and temperature-controlled fermentation designed to best enhance the aromas and flavours. Aged for 2 years in barrels and a further 6 months in bottle prior to release.
Stone fruit aromas with vanilla, almond, and oak spice. The creamy palate shows good weight with flavours of ripe peach and papaya balanced by fresh citrus fruit minerality on the lingering finish.
Fish from lake or sea, risottos but also the perfect accompaniment with tastier dishes such as delicate meats and cheeses.
Drink in its youth but could be carefully cellared for up to 5 years.
