Tenuta Roveglia 2004 Lugana ($14.00)
This transparent, light-gold wine offers a delicate scent of peaches with a subtle backdrop of fresh herbs. Full-bodied and intense, luscious fruit flavors follow the nose, wrapped up with mouth-watering acidity. An exceptional white wine, worth seeking out. US Importer: John Given Wines Co., Manhasset, N.Y. (Apr 6, 2007)
FOOD MATCH: Inspired by a course of tagliatelle with pike served with Lugana at Ristorante Lugana in Lugana Parco al Lago, I came up with a perfect match, a simple dish of fresh Walleye flaked over linguine. Just about any simple dish based on fresh, white freshwater fish would be fine, and I wouldn't say no to Lugana with poultry or pork.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
