Lake Garda’s dramatic depth, in combination with the shelter of the Alps, make Italy’s largest lake an unusually warm micro-climate for being so far north. At its base you will find Pasini San Giovanni, now in its third generation of family winemaking. With a focus on native varietals, the utilization of organic and biodynamic practices, Pasini San Giovanni’s modern winery is also entirely run on solar power. Their estate grown Lugana is 100% Turbiana, a grape closely related to Verdicchio. Bright and energetic with notes preserved lemon, ripe peach skin, and honeysuckle.
