 One of the benchmark bottlings for the denomination, this opens with enticing scents of fragrant white flower, white stone fruit and botanical herb. On the creamy, polished palate, fresh acidity brightens flavors of juicy honeydew melon, white peach and citrus while white-almond and mineral notes accent the finish. *Editor's Choice* (KO)  (8/2019)

Like almost every other staff member at K&L, I love Lugana, and live for the good ones. This "Riserva," bottling by Tenuta Roveglia is their dressed-up option - giving you all the crunchy Asian pear notes you should expect from any good Lugana, but also a weight and creaminess that pushes it into the serious wine category. The background on the palate of white stone and pleasant but present acid add to the experience immensely. A little bit of everything in the glass for the group of friends that all have different palates.

Deep, concentrated wine with precision and focus and impeccable elegance. Its aromas of meadow flowers and stone fruit, yellow peach in particular, are incredibly charming and captivating, and on the palate wine is juicy, fresh, supple with rich citrus, pear and nectarine notes, supported by healthy minerality.

Tenuta Roveglia is my go-to producer for Italian whites. There’s a depth here that I haven’t seen with this intensity in other vintages. Mineral water. Incredibly concentrated. A subtle aromatic start leads to fireworks on the palate. Plenty of crisp, fuji apple. Round and full, but still seemingly light on its feet. The fruit here is front and center. Lively acid lights up the palate. In past years, this has been a wine of great elements that come together well, this is in a class all its own.

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 spring sipping and Sunday brunches.

The nose of this wine is so inviting, it is filled with an aromatic that combines stone fruit, lavender with seemingly a textural component in the nose. It fills the air around you not with a floral component but a heady, musky almost humid richness. On the palate you see the wine is full immediately, all stainless steel but there’s a richness that gives creaminess to the wine that is ultra-pleasing to the palate. The acidic balance of this wine is perfect along with hints of minerality to lift it on the end of the palate. The flavors are a bit of peach, nectarine and pear subtle, but substantive highlighted with dried white flowers. The finish is long lasting and replays the wine’s richness, complex stone fruits all lifted to an excellent finish in a word irresistible.

Consistently Roveglia puts out vintage after vintage of gorgeous Lugana wines. The Riserva is a full-ish bodied Italian white with a crunchy mineral laden palate that delivers beautiful pear and white flower notes. This has a light pithy citrus and mineral edge giving the wine more structure and complexity that when asked the question, "one more glass?" The answer can only be "YES! Please!!"
