Lugana Oasi Mantellina:
the Allegrini Family’s
new challenge

Lugana Oasi Mantellina represents a new challenge for the Allegrini Family, which has purchased 40 hectares of land in the municipality of Pozzolengo, putting itself to the test in one the most interesting denominations in northern Italy. From the slopes of the medieval village, the Guyot-trained vineyards stretch out as far as the small lake that lends its name to the oasis, populated by rare animal species that enjoy a natural habitat in this unspoilt location. Here the clays become more sandy, the hills roll more gently and contain considerable gravely elements. The wines are therefore less mineral and more acidic. Allegrini’s wine making philosophy is championed again on this estate, starting from the careful choice of the locations in which the grapes are grown: pristine, unspoilt lands close to Lake Garda with its mitigating effect on the vines, so well-known now after decades of work in the famous vineyards of the Valpolicella. The land’s unique clays leave an unmistakable imprint on the Turbiana grapes and on a wine that aims to become a benchmark for the D.O.C.
