In a nutshell: Bright, layered and fragrant, this is a delicious example of Lugana which comes from the shores of Lake Garda
The lowdown: This is a good example of why Lugana is often considered one of northern Italy's most appealing dry whites. Brimming with fragrant aromas of white flower, tropical fruit and wild crushed herbs, it's bright and complex in the mouth, with gently honeyed notes of ripe honeydew melon and grapefruit. To round off, the lingering minerality on the finish brings everything to a delicious conclusion.
One of Verona's historic houses, Giacomo Montresor founded this winery in 1892 and initially built a reputation for high quality, affordable Valpolicella and Amarone. In recent years the range has grown steadily with vineyards being developed further afield around northeast Italy.

When to drink: Just the thing to pair pair with fish and seafood - Insalata di Mare anyone!
