Sipping Fine Wine

If you never tried a Lugana, a must, you will not be disappointed. Made with 100% Turbiana grapes. Lugana can be consumed young or aged for a few years gaining some mineral tones and elegance. The wine shows a light straw yellow color, with rich stone fruit and floral aromas. On the palate the wine displays flavors of ripe apricot, apple and bits of citrus enclosed in delicate acidity on a lingering ending. The finish has minerality that shows up gently. Nice value. Buy 2 and put one aside for a few years!

Riesling's less on time, cheese eating, little brother. Playful and powerful.

2014- Ecco Il Lugana! Pale straw…actually forget, there's clearly not enough of this wine in my glass!

Richly layered leesy nose. Focused, structured, and especially beautiful day 2.

Lugana DOC 2013, 13%. Bottle tasted in June 2014. I love this wine, I'm always pleased wit it. Lovely golden color, very nice fruity nose, and great in the mouth: round, rich and sapid. Paired it with a fish dinner! 88/100

Lugana 2012, 13% Not as good as the bottle I drank just few days earlier, unfortunately this one didn't have an attractive nose. Tasted much better, thankfully.

2012 Lugana. Very, very nice: rich fruity nose (apple in particular), and even richer in the mouth, sweet and buttery, but sapid too. Truly enjoyable! (luckily I didn't listen to the person who told me that I should not buy this bottle ....€ 8,50 really well spent)
