TOMMASI Le Fornaci Lugana 2021
90 points, “Sliced apples, wet stones and a hint of nectarine follow through to a crisp, dry and zesty palate that gives a rapid feel in the middle before ending with a refreshing and mouth-watering finish.” – James Suckling
This is an intense and elegant white from the historic Lugana DOC on the southern shore of Lake Garda. Le Fornaci is a wine we love to sip as the months get colder, because it’s just a little fuller in body and seems to capture the last of the summer sunshine in every bottle.
Over four generations and well over a century, the glamorous Tommasi estate has earned a reputation that has elevated them to become one of the ambassadors for Amarone and Valpolicella. Although famed for their big reds, Le Fornaci Lugana is a hidden gem that’s not to be missed. It’s crafted from 100% Turbiana harvested from two very different vineyards, which gives it a harmonious balance. Dry and refreshing with lots of yellow and golden fruit, and a finish like Marcona almonds on a sea breeze.
