Riserva Vigne di Catullo Lugana Trebbiano 2016

9.1

My first Turbiana, or Trebbiano di Lugana but genetically a Verdicchio.
Nose of ripe stone fruits, lemon zest, wet stone, light white floral, and hint of almond. Medium to full body. Firm, vivid acidity provides good tension to the otherwise textured palate, finished with a medium mineral note.
This old vine riserva bottling is like a hybrid between Napa chard and Chablis. Will need to taste more Turbiana.

Le Creete Lugana Trebbiano

Выдержка на дрожжевом осадке длилась 8 месяцев. Сначала в ароматике - очень много черносмородинового листа, словно Совиньон Блан. Затем - лайм, грейпфрут, яблоко, ананас, миндаль, пчелиный воск. Хорошая кислотность. Вкус - фруктово-минеральный. Очень интересно, очень питко. — 23 days ago

Gorgeous nose. Floral, cherry, red fruits, lemon, lime, smells like elite Champagne. The Pinot Noir shines through. Palate is a bit broad and all over the map. Good parts, and maybe dosage is also a bit high for my tastes. Meh. Maybe improve with air. Solid but inconsequential. — 18 days ago

Satèn Franciacorta Blend 2012

Saten is the unique style to the Franciacorta and this version truly make me picture the Garda Lake
Not at all a "I want you to like me" wine even though softness is intrinsic to the category
Oxidative notes, quite austere and complex
Long
It's hiding, it drink like a well aged complex Chardonnay a bit
