Montresor Lugana Bio 2020, Giacomo Montresor
Italy / Lombardy
Andy's Tasting Notes
From the sun-kissed area of southern Lake Garda, this zesty and almond infused white is both delicate and characterful. Fragrant and aromatic with hints of peach, herbs, grapefruit and acacia blossom. Finishes with an invigorating dryness tinged with honeyed richness.

The illustrious Montresor family moved from France to Italy at the start of the 19th Century, and settled in the Veneto region near Lake Garda. In 1892 Cantina Giacomo Montresor was established in Verona, and remains family-owned to this day.
Sustainability – some of the estate’s wines are already bottled in a lighter weight glass bottle (less than 420g) to reduce carbon dioxide emissions during transport, with the added benefit of reducing the amount of glass to be manufactured. Over the next two years, solar panels will be installed at the winery to provide some of the electricity required in the production process. Alongside this, Montresor is about to install a water purification system to recover and recycle the water used at the winery. The estate was certified organic at the end of 2019, with the release of new organic wines to follow.
