The Zenato Lugana San Benedetto is made from a selection of the best grapes from the eponymous estate. The vineyards are some of the appellation’s most historic and are considered to be among its best. Rich in personality and with great depth, this wine delivers a wide spectrum of fresh and complex aromas on the nose. It’s full-bodied and full-flavored in the mouth, with notes that shift from dried apple and pineapple to pear and vanilla. Its long, brilliant finish lingers with delicious results.

An intense and enveloping bouquet of white flowers with notes of pear and apple and nuances of peach and citrus. A fine, elegant and persistent perlage and a silky acidic vein gives freshness.

Produced with 100 percent Trebbiano di Lugana, this wine brightens up the glass with its straw yellow color. Its multifaceted nose is aromatic, fresh, and fruity, with notes of grape, peach, citron, grapefruit, and a hint of pineapple, which adds tropical character.

On the palate, the wine is approachable, fresh, and has good minerality.

Gracciano della Seta: Tuscany on the label

Logo Gracciano della Seta

From 22 April 2020, with the publication in the Official Gazette, the disciplinary of Montepulciano wines has been modified with the indication of “Tuscany”, obligatorily, on the label. This is a step forward for the recognisability of our wine in the world.

Bracciano nobile

The idea was launched to distinguish us from Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, then we became aware that the Tuscan brand can give great added value to our wine on the market. We all know that in the world Tuscany is easy to place from a geographical point of view, we expect that putting Tuscany on the label will promote communication and trade of our product. 

The mandatory wording concerns not only the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Docg, but also the Rosso and the Vin Santo di Montepulciano Doc. Specifically, the change concerns article 7 of the product specification of the three denominations and consists in the introduction of the obligatory to insert the broader geographical term, “Tuscany”, on the label, in addition to the denomination.

We will use the new labels from the 2020 vintage in Rosso di Montepulciano and from the 2018 vintage in Nobile di Montepulciano.
