Lugana Massoni Santa Cristina DOC
A wonderful Lugana. Full flavoured with body and complexity. Pure, beautifully structured with a long finish. This wine is lovely.
More due in shortly.
Santa Cristina is a very small winery on Lake Garda owned and run by the Zenato family. Here they make beautiful hand crafted wines in small quantities. They're very proud of the family's "Podere Massoni" vineyards and believe these produce exceptional fruit, representing the traditional wines of the region. They use only the best grapes and only produce wines under this label when conditions are right for top quality fruit.
I'm really impressed with these wines as they're very pure and clean in style. Presentation is simple and classical, and they use heavyweight bottles and high quality corks and foil. These wines are something special.
