In the southern shores of Lake Garda, 50 meters above sea level, is the home to one of Gigi Trattoria’s most popular and beloved wines. Lugana Limne, 2010, produced by Tenuta Roveglia, is 100% Trebbiano di Lugana. This straw yellow wine has aromas of peach and vanilla. Classic of Luganas, it has a fruity accent with a dry, subtle and elegant finish. The strong structure yet delicate and refined bouquet make this wine not only wonderful paired with food but delicious on its own especially as an aperitif.
It isn’t surprising that Tenuta Roveglia is considered the premier cru area of Lugana. The land that is Tenuta Roveglia has been producing wines since the Roman ages when Poet Catullo heralded this region for its wine. Not only is this region esteemed for superb wines but it is also breathtakingly beautiful. The clay soil indigenous to the terroir of this DOC region create vibrant green vines and of course extraordinary grapes.
Whether it’s the ancient heritage of the land or the picturesque environment that the grapes are grown in, something about the Tenuta Roveglia Lugana makes it simply irresistible. Whenever we have tried to take if off the glass list at Gigi Trattoria it has been yearned for. So we have decided not only to sell it for $10 a glass and $33 a bottle, but we now sell it at Gigi Market! If you have never tried to the Tenuta Roveglia Lugana, you must come into Gigi to see just what we are talking about. And don’t forget on Wednesdays all of our wines by the bottle are 30% off!
