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.
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.
A fresh and light wine that suits very well as aperitif, but also goes well with fish dishes.
