Wine EnthusiastSpring blossom, white stone-fruit and citrus aromas come together on this. The bright fresh palate offers green apple, citrus zest and white peach while a hint of almond gives it a pleasantly bitter finish.

Wine AdvocateHere's a fresh Italian white to enjoy during the summer months. The 2016 Lugana Montunal (made with Trebbiano di Lugana) is light and fresh both in appearance and character. The wine offers simple sensations of citrus and honeydew melon. This grape is not particularly aromatic, but it does hit the spot in terms of crispness and accessibility.
