Description to S. Martino della Battaglia DOC

DOC area for white wine in the border area of the Italian regions Lombardy and Veneto at the southern end of Lake Garda. The area is named after a battlefield where the Piedmontese defeated the Austrians in 1859. The zone covers about 25 hectares of vineyards in the municipalities of Desenzano del Garda, Lonato, Pozzolengo and Sirmione in the province of Brescia (Lombardy), and Peschiera del Garda in the province of Verona (Veneto). This makes the area one of the smallest wine-growing regions in Europe. The former name was "Tocai di San Martino della Battaglia", which after Hungarian intervention (to avoid confusion with the Tokaj) had to be shortened after years of dispute in accordance with the EU decision on the "Tocai di"

The dry, sun-yellow wine with an almond and lemon aroma is made from at least 80% Tuchì(Sauvignonasse) and a maximum of 20% of other authorised varieties. The name Tuchì applies exclusively to this DOC area, because in Friuli Venezia Giulia the variety is called Friulano and in the rest of Veneto Tai (the former, no longer permitted name was Tocai Friulano). There is also a fortified sweet liquoroso with 15% vol alcohol content. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna can be indicated followed by the name of the vineyard.
