Ottella's Le Creete is a single vineyard, or cru wine and was one of the first true Cru of Lugana. It's rich, elegant, harmonious, a fantastic example of the quality that Lugana can produce. It's a firm favourite with us and really interesting to contrast again the Ottella Lugana DOC which is a more traditional, simple - which never means easy - version of Lugana.
During the last dinner date of our Quaranvino Summer Wines series, Michele of Ottella mesmerised our guests with his stories of how art and ethics are the pillars of this winery.
