The Luigi Baudana 'Dragon' Langhe Bianco is made by G.D.Vajra and is a brilliant light yellow in colour. On the nose are aromas of lemon, lime zest, lemon curd and hints of mint. The palate is refreshing and structured, with distinct notes of peach, apricot and mango balanced by an energetic saline finish.

It must have been before lockdown that I tried and enjoyed an earlier vintage of this wine, only to be disappointed when I returned to the shop to discover that this wine had "sold out". I was therefore delighted to learn that they now have it back in stock. Compared to French whites, I have found this to be an outstanding value. It has a crisp taste and for me was not too sharp and accompanied my dressed avocado starter perfectly. It would also do very nicely on its own or with a variety of white meats.
I need to get back to Aitkens before they run out again!
