Sansonina 2016 Lugana Fermentazione Spontanea
91 points

The 2016 Lugana Fermentazione Spontanea is fermented in oak and aged in stainless steel. This pretty white wine is enormously redolent of peach, white apple and summer-ripe pear. This wine is slightly creamy in approach, with a softness and richness to the palate that is reinforced by those summer fruit flavors.
