89 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of mature apricot, tropical fruit and citrus zest lead the nose. The round, juicy palate offers ripe yellow peach, poached pear and juicy tangerine alongside fresh acidity. Alcohol 13%. (Jul 2016)"

Importer notes: "The winery Ancilla Lugana is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Garda in northeastern Italy, in the immediate area of the historic town of Sirmione, on an isthmus complete with medieval drawbridge and crenellated castle walls surrounding the even more ancient Roman thermal-baths resort. Here, cool breezes from the Dolomites to the north mitigate the warmth of the glacial plain with its predominantly clay soils laced with limestone. Luisella Benedetti is the third generation of women to run this estate, having inherited the farm known as 'La Ghidina' from her mother, who inherited in turn from her mother, named Ancilla. She carries on her grandmother’s great passion for the vineyards and for the local Turbiana variety, also known as Trebbiano di Lugana. The wine labeled 1909 is in fact a tribute to her grandmother: named for the year of her birth, it is produced and bottled without any added sulfites, as practiced during her grandmother’s lifetime."
