    This wine excites me: the nose is floral, spicy, and a bit of beeswax and honey flow from the glass. On the palate the wine has weight and a distinct richness yet you immediately feel the snap of acidity, that vibrant center-palate zing that just lights up your mouth, and a rarity to find wines that have that richness but are so clean on the palate, and at only 13.0%. The flavors are spice, lees, braised fruit, all offset by the focused central acidity that add lift and drive to the palate presence. The finish is long, mineral driven, and shows incredible balance; layers of fruit, spice and floral notes are consistently blossoming in the finish. This Lugana Limne is capable of aging very well for another 2-4 years, the Riserva up to 10 years.

    Tenuta Roveglia is the most recent addition to our Italian direct import portfolio and their wines are already turning heads. My colleague Greg St. Clair alerted me some time ago as to just how impressive Roveglia's Luganas were and he was right. Over the years I've found most Lugana to be either a bit lean or conversely more akin to oaky new world Chardonnay with few rising above. Neither is the case with Roveglia. Their "Limne" is a value priced Lugana that weds crisp acidity with flavorful honeyed fruit and is vibrant on the palate from start to finish. We were expecting this to retail closer to $20 and were astonished to find otherwise. This versatile white drinks nicely as an aperitif but will pair nicely with shellfish, white meats and lighter Asian style dishes. Impressive.
