 Made from old vines, this stunning wine opens with heady aromas of ripe apple and fragrant white flower. Round and creamy, the palate delivers Bartlett pear, white peach and nectarine zest alongside fresh acidity. A white-almond note graces the persistent finish. (KO)  (8/2017)

Pure and fresh, this is a delicious dry white wine. Lugana is one of Italy's most popular white wines, probably because the good ones like this are so smooth, light, and easy to drink. This wine comes from the southern shores of Lake Garda. This is the perfect wine for your summer sipping and Sunday brunches.

The nose of this wine is sensual, it initially seems somewhat like stone fruits but it’s beyond that there’s almost a texture in the nose, it fills the air around you not with a floral component but a heady, musky almost humid richness. On the palate you see the wine is full immediately, all stainless steel but there’s a richness that gives creaminess to the wine that is ultra pleasing to the palate. Not that the wine is flabby it has excellent acidity with hints of minerality to lift it on the end of the palate. The flavors are a bit of peach, nectarine and pear subtle but substantive highlighted with dried white flowers. The finish is long lasting and replays the wine’s richness, complex stone fruits all lifted to an excellent finish.
Drink from 2017 to 2020

After tasting this new arrival I would never have guessed it was a 2014 but rather a 2015. It's bold and intensely concentrated with a surprising amount of acidity that makes it the complete package. Although it's full and round, it's also light on its feet. Rich honey and minerals emerge on the palate and continue on a long finish. It reminded us somewhat of a well made Chenin Blanc with the uniqueness that makes it truly Italian. Seafood, white meats and egg dishes with this one.

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
