It is the result of the wonderful Turbiana grapes, grown in the most prestigious vineyard. The Bragagna farm extends for 22 hectares and lies exactly to the south of the Sirmione peninsula, where the soil is made up of the splendid clay that goes underground for over 60 meters. The vines have an average age of 40 years and, together with the young plants, give a Lugana with unmistakable fruit and incomparable richness.
