  • Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Lugana lifts up with a lemony freshness, mixed with yellow flowers and tropical fruits. It’s creamy in texture yet buzzing with energy, with notes of sour apple and kiwi giving way to salty mineral tones. The energy remains high right through the finale, as this tapers off to a tart twang of grapefruit and savory spice. Really fun, highly enjoyable and a great value too. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
