Tommasi Le Fornaci Lugana DOC 2021, Italy

This intense and harmonious wine, which combines structure with elegance, comes from the historic Lugana zone on the southern shore of Lake Garda. Lugana Le Fornaci is a blend from the separate vinification of two vineyards with very different soil compositions. Each of them contributes to completing a balanced wine that has much to tell, especially after a few extra years in the cellar. Tasting Note: Intense and bright yellow on the nose it is fruity and fragrant, with notes of tropical fruit and grapefruit. The taste is dry and harmonious and it has an elegant freshness. It is intense, persistent and mineral with the typical hint of almond finish. Lugana Le Fornaci is obtained from an accurate harvest of the grapes, followed by slow fermentation at controlled temperature (14?/18?C) and stripping by natural sedimentation. Aging for about 3 months on lees and fine yeasts followed by aging in steel. Origin: Guyot-owned vineyards in Desenzano del Garda planted with a high density. One parcel is on a calcareous soil, variously stratified and clayey, the other two has a more sandy composition and it is rich in silt. The selection of the grapes from the clay soil gives body and structure, the sandy soil instead gives aroma and elegance.
