On the palate, it’s balanced, a joyous but delicate wine, with a silky acidity.

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.
This Lugana Riserva is the fruit of the Zenato family’s genuine passion and a reflection of their history in the appellation.
