Description

Lugana has become a must in the Lake Garda region, where it originated. This white wine, made from the Trebbiano grape variety, has a pronounced juiciness, freshness and richness of fruit. On the nose, it gives off aromas of lychee, white peach and kaffir leaves. On the palate, the aromas of the nose are mirrored, and it also shows great fullness with well-integrated acidity and a long, fine mineral finish.

Casa Lupo by Paladin

Casa Lupo is the Paladin family’s Valpolicella “subsidiary” and consists of 25 hectares spread between the towns of Negrar and Illasi in the province of Verona.

Visitors to Veneto usually stay at Lake Garda or in “Romeo and Juliet’s” culturally rich city of Verona. But wine enthusiasts will be tempted by the Ripassi and Amaroni along the southern slopes of the central Alps leading down to Valpolicella.

Paladin’s vineyard team cultivates the vines here all year round and takes care of the harvest. Vinification and bottling is carried out by a local partner to ensure compliance with the legal regulations for DOC and DOCG.

The name “Casa Lupo” has its origins in the history of the region, where many years ago Valpolicella was almost completely covered with forests which were inhabited by several large packs of wolves. It was literally the home of the wolf, or “Casa Lupo” in Italian.

The white calcareous and argillaceous soils are used to cultivate the red grape varieties Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara. The Mediterranean climate produces elegant, sophisticated and very complex wines, which delight visitors with their excellent drinkability and pair perfectly with local cuisine.

Grape variety

Trebbiano

Largest wine provider in the world

Whenever someone speaks of Trebbiano, it is important to first ask, "Which one?" It is as though the name was once given to every vine with whitish berries, large clusters, later maturity and strong growth. They are not necessarily related to each other. The most prominent representative is the Trebbiano Toscano. It shows high acidity and a fairly neutral aroma profile. Nevertheless, it produces more wine than any other grape in the world. Cognac is responsible for part of this: after the Trebbiano came to Avignon with the Popes in the 14th century, it trekked further via Languedoc into the cognac region of the Charente. There, it is called Ugni blanc. With its high acidity and subdued aromas, it is perfect for distillation. In Tuscany, it is pressed into Vin Santo. Before 2006, it was additionally a part of the Chianti recipe. Another branch of the family is the Trebbiano d'Abruzzo , which in central Italy ideally yields mineral wines with great aging potential.

Veneto: land of the Amarone and Prosecco

Veneto stretches from the Alpine foothills, through the flat Po Valley, to the Gulf of Venice on the Adriatic coast. Two types of wine in particular have been able to celebrate spectacular successes here in recent years: Amarone growths impress with their opulent body and force, while the cheerfully bubbling Proseccos please with their fruity, grape freshness. But the region also produces drinkable everyday wines, including the white Soave and the red Bardolino.

Italy – Where wine is a way of life

The Italian wine regions are extremely diverse, and this is made clear in their wines. Established varieties such as Merlot, Syrah, and Sauvignon can be found on just 15 percent of the total vine growing area. The remaining 85 percent is reserved for autochthonous, indigenous varieties. More than 2,000 different grape varieties are grown under diverse conditions and pressed with various techniques into wines that reach the top tier of the international wine market.
