Introduced in the Veneto region by the Venetians since the XIII century, only in the Euganean hills the Fior d'Arancio muscat grapes keep so strongly their mediterranean character, sunny and vigorous. Intense perfumes, thick and colorful skin, crunchy pulp are the distinctive elements of this archaic variety that loves bright and dry sites. It is an ancient farmer’s tradition to select the most ripe grapes and let them dry on racks in old barns, with the dual purpose of producing an intense sweet wine and rustic cakes for the winter-spring holidays. After about 4 months of drying in bins of 1.5 kg each, the grapes are crushed for maceration, fermentation and then pressing. The result is a thick juice, gold coloured and with a certain astringency that is left to evolve into oak barrels of 5-10 hl until the spontaneous stabilization. Because of its intensity and complexity it falls under the category of the "meditation wines".

The producer

Ca' Lustra is a path in an area that is not famous, nor talked about, but unique for the strong character of its land and for the great natural and historical significance. It is since the late sixties that Ca'Lustra enthusiastically puts every effort into the Euganean viticulture with the objective of quality: a fascinating adventure led by Franco Zanovello both in the vineyards and in the winery with the help of motivated employees. The 25 hectares of vineyards, and other 15 of olive trees, woods and pasture, are all within the Euganean Hills Regional Park, divided into various "cru" with particular soil and climate characteristics. Deep knowledge of the area, never ending study and experimentation, combined with the historical research, are at the root of the winery’s personality.
