Lungolago is Viandante del Cielo’s white, a blend of Chardonnay with and native Grechetto, and a perfect evocation of the lakeside terroir which gives it its name.
Delicate nose white peach and hints of pineapple. Spicy and savoury character with distictive fennel and peppermint from Grechetto. Salty and stony. The lively acidity and the wet-stones minerality is counterbalanced by the creamy, expansive texture. Aromatic herbs, a bit of camphor. Long, lingering finish with citrus fruit and liquorice carried by a unique salinity.
