Gruccione Lugana DOC

Named after the species of bird which flies from North Africa each year to feed on bees in Nunzio’s vineyards, this is a willowy, fresh wine. Citrus and green fruit are to the fore before the palate reveals more exotic notes and there is a weighty richness to counter the crisp freshness.

Description

The Lugana “Il Gruccione” is a white wine with a fresh, fine and delicate character that comes from Turbiana vines grown in the Sirmione area. It releases notes of citrus fruit, white flowers, hints of fresh almond, flint and savory puffs.
