Zenato Lugana San Benedetto 2019
|Region||Italy, Veneto, Lugana|
Made from 100% Trebbiano di Lugana harvested from the San Benedetto parcel on the south shore of Lake Garda. The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and refined for six months before being released.
Pale lemon-green in color, San Benedetto Lugana offers appealing notes of peaches, citrus, bananas, and herbs, which are underscored by crisp acidity and supple body on the palate.
Apricot, apple and white-peach aromas with a hint of ginger, too. It’s full-bodied with beautiful concentration of fruit and lightly minerally, spicy undertones. Steely and intense, like cru Chablis.
Pleasingly plump and juicy, this medium-bodied white offers a tangy mix of Meyer lemon peel, apricot, blanched almond and fresh chive flavors, with a stony undertow. Drink now. 30,000 cases made, 3,000 cases imported.
Aromas of banana and peach follow over to the tangy palate, along with pineapple notes. Vibrant acidity accompanies the fruity flavors.
