Menasasso Lugana Riserva
Last week I visited Podere Selva Capuzza close to the Garda Lake. A wonderful location with agriturismo, restaurant and the winery. The have a nice selection of white, red, rosé, dessert and sparkling wines. Selva Capuzza - Menasasso Lugana Riserva (87 tsomw points)
The Trebbiano grapes are partially fermented in barrique and partly in steel.
In the glass a bright straw yellow color.
On the nose aromas of spring flowers, citrus fruit, peach with a mineral background and hints of herbs.
On the palate good balance and structure with flavours of yellow apple, peach, tangerine showing notes of almond, honey and herbs and a nice long finish.

Produced from a selected plot within the Selva Cru, the Menasasso grapes, that make up this rich and refined white wine, are harvested few days after the regular vintage to explore the full potential of the this wonderful vineyard. A small part of the must is fermented in small oak barrels exclusively with the aim to impart extra complexity to the finished wine without imparting undesired wood flavors.
