Le Morette - Benedictus Lugana 2015 (87 tsomw points)
In the glass a bright golden yellow color.
On the nose intense aromas of green apple, exotic fruit, pear and lychee with hints of herbs, barrel and spices.
On the palate rich, light buttery with enough freshness and a long final. Very good price quality rate.
This wine is produced exclusively by the selection of the Turbiana grapes, chosen from those exposed the most to sunlight. After the harvesting these grapes remain in contact with the must for one day at low temperature, to get particularly fruity and aromatic sensations. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature to obtain a slow fermentation, to get a high quality wine. Lugana Benedictus has a pale straw-yellow colour, with gold reflections. Its flavour is fresh with intense exotic fruity sensations and hints of spice, due to the oak fermentation and ageing in small oak barrels. Its particular flavour make it a perfect companion with several kinds of cuisine from fish to delicate rice dishes, and white meat preparations. Recommended serving temperature is 12-14°C, with large glasses.
Obtained exclusively from “Turbiana” grapes, which are originally from this area of Lake Garda. Production per hectare is 8.000 kg.
