Selva Capuzza Lugana Riserva DOC 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Produced from a selected plot within the Selva vineyard the Menasasso grapes, that make up this rich and refined white wine, are harvested few days after the regular vintage to explore the full potential of the this wonderful vineyard. A very small part of the must is fermented in small oak barrels exclusively with the aim to impart extra complexity to the finished wine without imparting undesired wood flavors.

Selva Capuzza is a small farm dedicated to producing wines exclusively from 6 indigenous grape varities. In the estate there are many olive trees, a wood which is an old truffle plantation, wide open spaces dedicated to biodiversity, a park with secular mulberries and two little ponds. Selva Capuzza is the ancient name of the locality, in fact some countryside areas located at the south of the lake were called “Silvae” ( wild place) during Rome's age. The name “Capuzza” ( cap- is root for head) may come from its high position at the beginning of the hills of lake Garda's morainic amphitheater, on the “hood” placed not so far from Tower of S.Martino Della Battaglia. (Also today in roman dialect “Capuzza” means head of lamb). 870 steps of wandering through vineyards, meadows, the truffle plantation with its oaks, hornbeams and willows, separate restaurant Cascina Capuzza from agriturismo Borgo San Donino, while you'll meet the winery in the middle of the walk. Located 4 km south of lake Garda's coast in a very precious area where three wine appellations overlap each other: Garda Classico, San Martino della Battaglia and in Lugana's hearth. Hunting is forbidden since many years to protect local fauna and our guest's peace. Deep and constant care is dedicated to keep Co2 emissions and pollution at the lowest through a very rich combination of practices.   Read less
