Top Notes For
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.

My first from this region, the marZipan & saltiness quite refined. Even the bottle is elegant-weighty, ornate. Light medium in weight

Very nice white with lemon peel and some cream and stone. Good clean juicy acidic finish. Had this wine a couple of times on Lake Como but difficult to find in US.
