2010 Cascina Le Preseglie "Hamsa" Lugana

SKU #1090738

This small production, citrus-scented white is made from Trebbiano de Lugana grown in the Lugana DOC near Lake Garda in the Veneto on a small agriturismo. It has nice texture on the palate, without being heavy (who wants to drink heavy wine when it's hot out?), good acidity and juicy tangerine flavors. Try pairing with grilled freshwater trouth stuffed with treviso, herbs and citrus.

I've never had a wine so universally swooned over by the staff when I opened it for them to taste more than I did when I popped this little charmer. Staff here is a tough crowd, so even when the majority of them is really impressed with a wine, there's almost always one or two that find it "ehhh... just okay". Not so on this one; even the most critical amongst them were blown away. This is made from a clone of Trebbiano grown in the Lugana area just south of the tip of Lake Guarda. Crystalline purity of tree and stone fruit, with hints of ginger, wet pavement, and high toned white flower. Lovely weight in the mouth without being heavy, and a wonderful crispness and snap. Huge fan of this wine myself, needless to say. CM

Italy

- 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.
