I think it's truly outstanding. Probably one of the best Lugana wines I have ever had the chance to try. I've drunk it several times already, and I have always found it has a very distinctive character. Perhaps it's a little difficult to understand at the moment, because it's still closed and nervous. But, in my opinion, there is a fascinating future in store for it...

It is aged in steel: just steel, no wood at all. Even though alcohol content is high, it's masked by a vivid freshness that is quite unusual for a warm vintage. The wine reeks of citrus fruits (lemon and grapefruit) and also citronella and mowed grass. It has a well-rounded vegetality and it shows a forceful minerality. There are hints of green almond and chlorophyll tones in the lingering finale. Just let it rest a while longer and it will give you great satisfaction. I'm willing to bet on it... (Angelo Peretti).
