The Vigne di Catullo Lugana Riserva by Tenuta Roveglia is the big brother of the classic Limne Lugana. The perfectly ripened Riserva comes into the glass with an intense yellow, almost golden colour. The first nose shows all kinds of ripe yellow fruit, including quince, peach, mirabelles and apricots. Spicy notes of hazelnuts and almonds as well as delicate floral and herbal nuances round off the bouquet of Catullo Lugana Riserva.
The Catullo Lugana starts on the palate with a powerful touch, wonderful fullness and mineral nuances. Lots of fruit and nutty spicy notes round off the Catullo Lugana Riserva perfectly.
Wine Enthusiast: 92 points and Editor's Choice: "Aromas of ripe orchard fruit, citrus, grilled herb and nuts delicately guide the nose. Round and delicious, the medium-bodied palate delivers baked yellow apple, creamy white peach, ginger and white almond alongside tangy acidity. A juicy note of candied lemon drop lingers on the close."
