04/09/2016 – Ancilla, Lugana ‘Ella’ 2015

(2016) From the Italian lakes comes this crisp and aromatic white, made from the local Turbiana grape. Fresh as a daisy, this is in many ways a subtle wine, yet it is also a decisive one. The nose has pretty floral and ripe, crisp apple notes, a hint of something like waxy lime or lemon rind. Is there a hint of creaminess from some barrel component?  On the palate it strikes with real fruit sweetness, an intense, almost tangerine-like blend of fruit and acidity, intense and turning a touch saline to leave a mouth-watering finish despite the abundant fruity charms.
