"The only Veronese producer of Lugana": this is how it was defined, at the end of the nineteenth century, the Ottella winery, today one of the most renowned wineries in the southern area of Lake Garda. We are exactly in Peschiera del Garda, in the province of Verona, precisely in the locality of Ottella: it is here that Lodovico Montresor, together with his sons Francesco and Michele, has carried out a bet that over time has been fully won. Focusing on the grape variety of Trebbiano di Lugana, locally called "turbiana", the challenge that father and sons took on was to produce conceptually modern wines, in full respect of the peculiar characteristics of the territory and varietal. In the vineyard, on soils of clear glacial origin, consisting of layers of mainly clayey and calcareous sediments, the plants are bred with maniacal care, exploiting a constantly ventilated microclimate, useful to ensure that valuable, frank and healthy grapes are harvested. In the forty hectares of vineyards owned by the company, the lion’s share is obviously Lugana, but also flanked by other varieties of vines such as Chardonnay, Manzoni, Sauvignon Blanc and Garganega, and then again Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella and Molinara, the latter used for the production of the classic wines of Valpolicella. In the cellar, we find the same philosophy adopted among the rows, so the goal is to work the bunches exalting and enhancing everything that nature has created. Ethical value and aesthetic value, for a recipe with few ingredients, in which the simple becomes synonymous with quality. Then we start from Lugana, then go to Lugana "Le Creete" and the Reserve "Molceo", and again to "Vigne Nuove" and "Gemei", up to Ripasso della Valpolicella, Amarone della Valpolicella and distillates: labels, those that refer to the name "Ottella", elegant and pleasing, mineral and refined, intriguing and never obvious, fruit of the deepest love for their vineyards and for their work.
