Here comes Ligurian refreshment at its absolute best. Grown on steep terraces clinging to the cliffs above the Mediterranean, these native Lumassina grapes make a wine that weighs in around 11% alcohol, with a slight spritz, salty tang, and crisp green apple and star fruit to boot. Richard Olney would have affectionately referred to this type of wine as “mouth rinse,” a palate perker to enjoy before the real apéritif arrives. I have to assume that the name of the grape has its root in “luminous” or luminoso, as this wine alights the senses! –Dixon Brooke
