Review:

Ottella, or "place of the octuplets". Yet today the name of this company is inextricably linked to the identity of Lugana. The most famous producers of the Veneto slice of the denomination, active since the nineteenth century, the Montresors - today the brothers Michele and Francesco - manage one of the most dynamic and innovative areas of the district. This is demonstrated by the winery itself: a sixteenth-century farmhouse which has recently seen the addition of a very modern structure, of elegant architectural taste which is extremely functional.

Ottella boasts a very respectable group of Turbiana vineyards, with over 50-year-old rows that surround the property in a beautiful landscape of excellence. The soils are morainic and clayey, which give a structured but at the same time long-lasting and vertical Lugana. Molceo represents the superior expression of this productive philosophy offered by nature.

From grapes harvested late in October, Molceo is a Lugana Reserve which, however, is aged in wood only to a small extent, using tonneaux and barriques, which very gracefully accompany the 16 months of resting of the wine in stainless steel on the fine lees. A reserve, therefore, in its own right, but which tells the story of the territory in an expressive and natural way, without the excesses of a too marked aging in wood.

Golden, clear, intense in colour, delicately straw-coloured in its youth, Molceo's bouquet opens up immediately with fruity notes, which outline its bewitching, penetrating and complex trait. Characterised by hints of citrus, the bouquet is innervated with a mineral note that, fine and elegant in the early years, is destined to explode with richness and breadth with aging, announcing clear hints of hydrocarbon. It is also mineral, which is fascinating, long, very lively, both in persistence and in the rigorous correspondence of the aromas. The acidic backbone is at the forefront, but it is accompanied by a pleasant softness: an ideal prelude to a harmonious and endless longevity.
