Lugana San Benedetto 2013


This was the second December wine from my wine club. It was refreshing but had a surprising heft to it, and held up well for winter drinking.

The wine was a nice amber color, with overwhelming notes of honeysuckle in the nose. Very floral and lush.

I'm pretty sure I tasted kiwifruit and lychee in it, but it's been a while since I've had a lychee and I don't really like kiwifruit so I may be a bit off on that...either way, the fruit flavors were balanced by a nice, structured acidity. It was a wine that knew what it was talking about.

Very nice.
