Tommai Lugana Le Fornaci 2019 (90 DE)
“Tommasi’s reputation is founded on its range of Valpolicellas and Amarones, however Le Fornaci is the estate’s top white wine. From the Lugana DOC – a small region on Lake Garda’s southern shore – this white offers honeyed citrus, melon and white flower scents. In the mouth it has a leesy character brightened by crisp lemon, melon and green apple flavours. A hint of minerality leads to a floral finish with just a touch of honey and elderflower.”
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.
