This international award winning white wine originates from the ancient vineyard ‘Vigna Bragagna’ in the heart of Lugana. The harmonic fullness of this wine is determined by the Turbiana grapes, the exceptionally old vines and the clay based soil in which they grow. It is fresh, fruity and full bodied with a slightly bitter almond aftertaste. This Lugana is particular from all others. It proudly displays the name Sirimone on the label and the Avanzi Lugana is the only winery authorized to do so according to Italian law, due to the fact that the grapes originate from the unique soil of Avanzi’s ‘Vigna Bragagna’.
