NOTES Lugana San Vigilio is obtained from the vinification of Turbiana (or Trebbiano di Soave) grapes, a vine of ancient native origin of this area. The manual harvest takes place in advance of the full ripeness of the grapes and fermentation takes place in steel containers. The resulting wine is fresh and fragrant, slightly mineral.
