Tommai Lugana Le Fornaci 2020 (91 DE)
“This Lugana is dangerously delicious: melon and yellow fruit aromas are joined by a stony note, with intense, fleshy and vibrant flavours of cantaloupe melon, apricot, peach skin and even a touch of banana peel. Well balanced and delicious, with a long finish and a hint of mouthwatering salinity.”
Le Fornaci hails from Lugana, a trendy, growing appellation on the southern shores of Lake Garda. Tommasi has long owned an estate in the village of San Martino della Battaglia, where they produce elegant white wines made from the indigenous and largely unknown Turbiana grape.
Tommasi has proudly presided over Italy’s Veneto region for over 120 years, with wines that are both renowned for their superior quality and consistently regarded as reference points for their respective appellations. As one of the single most influential producers in Italy, the winery is committed to sustainable practices and continues to craft each wine from 100% estate-owned vineyards.
