An absolute delight. Inviting aromas of peaches and green apples. it is Creamy, textured with layers of tangerine and sweet Meyer lemons. Bright acidity which makes it crisp and a perfect wine to pair with food. Savory finish with a juicy palate.

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 2016 "Limne" was a huge hit with customers and staff alike and the 2017 is already flying out of the store. It's slightly drier than the 2016 with lively acidity and delicious honey and mineral notes on the palate. At this price it certainly ranks among the best white wine values in the store.

Our favorite Italian white is back with another vintage. Absurdly complex for the price, the Limne has something for everyone. White peach, green apple and tropical fruit mingle with brilliant acidity and gorgeous minerality. The late harvest for these Verdicchio grapes allows for optimal ripeness, providing ample body and delicate floral aromas. The finish brings a hint of savory almonds, but the fruit and flowers remain present throughout. Impress your friends by bringing this to dinner or a party.

- 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.
