"VIGNE DI CATULLO", LUGANA, RISERVA, DOC, 2013
Tenuta Roveglia


Born in the thirties, Tenuta Roveglia boasts the most extensive vineyard in the area of Lugana. Tenuta Roveglia has 175 acres of vineyards within the more than 245 acres of the estate.

Vigne di Catullo is a Lugana of great personality.  Its delicate yet robust qualities satisfy the most demanding and discerning palates.  The grapes come from the area of Lugana designated as premier cru, which was already heralded for its wine by the ancient Roman poet Catullo two thousand years ago.

Tasting Notes: Its rich flavor, with accents of hazelnut and ripe fruit, and a focused, silky finish make this wine an ideal accompaniment for pasta in light sauces, roasted meats, seafood dishes, risotto and cheese.

#32 in Top 100 Best Wines of the WORLD!!!! by Wine Enthusiast 2016

94  POINTS  Editors’ Choice - "Delicately scented, this radiant wine opens with ultrarefined scents of white field flower, citrus blossom, aromatic herb and a whiff of orchard fruit. The creamy,  elegantly structured palate boasts layers of juicy white peach, crisp green apple, tangerine and a hint of white almond. Fresh acidity brightens the creamy flavours while an energizing mineral note closes the lingering finish. " Wine Enthusiast 2016
