Tommasi Le Fornaci Lugana DOC

In a Nutshell

Fresh and lively white from near Lake Garda

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe, tropical fruit lead on to a citrus-laden palate with highlights of peach and sweet pineapple. A dash of vanilla cream hits the mid-palate whilst the finish is dry, and mineral-laden with a zingy, zesty twang.

Production Notes

The grapes are fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the aromatic compounds of the grapes, in stainless steel tanks for seven days. After fermentation, the wine spends a further five months maturing in stainless steel before bottling.
