Crisp, clean, refreshing with layers of flavours
Description: Light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features honeysuckle, apricot, Asian pear, grapefruit, green apple, peach pit, limestone and a touch almond. Medium body with good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Note: This could easily pass for a Viognier. Don’t over chill as it will loose it’s underneath layers.
Thanks to Maria from LCBO for recommending this wine to me.
Drink now or in the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with Trout with Garlic Lemon Butter Herb Sauce.

Here's a solid, typically food-friendly Italian white made by a solid, reliable producer. And it's very good, if not terribly exciting. Made from the Trebbiano di Lugana grape (Turbiana) on the south coast of Lake Garda, it offers notes of lemon, apple, and stone fruit, with almond providing that characteristic Italian touch. It's zippy and refreshing but also quite restrained, a touch of elegance elevating it above the basic. While not terribly complex, it does have decent flavour depth and impressive length, crispness but also nice body. Nicely done, overall, even if it falls a bit short.
