Lugana is a plain DOC, characterized by fertile clayey soils, which gradually become more sandy in the hilly area of the DOC. These soils are depositories of the organoleptic heritage del Lugana: body and warmth, acidity and flavor in the structural backbone of the wine, vigorous, clear aromas, between almond and citrus, in the aromatic set.

The temperatures and its weather conditions are in many ways more similar to those of the Mediterranean climate. In fact, Garda is characterized by a Mediterranean-type flora: olive and lemon trees flourish almost everywhere in the coastal towns.

The Zamichele farm is located in the heart of the gentle morainic hills between Peschiera, Sirmione and Pozzolengo. The family has been involved in agriculture for over a hundred years, with total respect for the surrounding land, fauna and flora. Commitment, passion, love for the land, mild climate and clean air allow us to produce fine grapes that stand out for their richness of aromas and great quality. The choice not to use herbicides and desiccants can be verified with the naked eye: the grass between the rows grows luxuriantly and local birds nest there: reeds, tits, finches, robins and many other species. The lucky ones may come across a hare or a pheasant. We pay the utmost attention during the work in the fields so as not to destroy the nests and not to disturb these roommates who guarantee a constant balance to the whole territory.
