Light straw yellow with green hints, citrus notes, fine and elegant mineral, great structure and balance, great mouth/nose matching. The vineyards are located on the banks of lake Frassino in the heart of Lugana. The vine is trained in a double guyot. The soil has a high percentage of clay which generates grapes with high sugar content.
LLAC is a return of the Piona family to Lugana. His grandfather Luciano owned a campaign at the Frassino that was sold by his son Giulietto to expand the Prendina. The grandchildren, Franco and Luciano, decided to return right to the Frassino lake and today the Farm 'LLAC is a micro vineyard in the heart of Lugana'.
Perhaps, more than with the Cavalchina, the story begins with his grandfather Luciano; it was he who bought the first vineyards and then, in 1948, who built the winery that also housed a pomace distillery until 1967. The company was born as a game and a passion, an activity complementary to the main one of leather processing. Luciano was an eclectic person: he loved wine, but also lyric. This last passion of his led him to meet illustrious people, so much so that Maria Callas was his guest. His industry was among the few in Italy to manufacture football boots and this led him to also be a football player dealer. The stories of Luciano, Cavalchina and Custoza are linked and sometimes overlap. It was he who first, in 1962, decided to call the white wine of the area “Custoza”, he also sketched a first “recipe”: a wine obtained from the vines of Fernanda, Trebbiano and Garganega and led it to establish itself in the markets, then more important, of Rome and Milan.
Pairing Suggestions: Excellent with raw fish (oysters) and sushi. It goes very well with vegetable and fish first and main courses.
Maturation: The must, after natural sedimentation, is fermented for 10-15 days at 16°C. The wine ages on lees and fine yeasts until it is bottled.
