[ Home > Wines > Italy > Zenato Lugano 2010 ]|
Made from 100% single-vineyard 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 and refined in tanks for six month before the wine is released on the market.
Straw yellow in color with greenish hues, it offers elegant and appealing aromas of peach, citrus, banana and herbs, beautifully sustained by a crisp, minerally and supple body. The balanced acidity and a slight and pleasantly bitter finish allow for a wide choice of food pairings.
"A superclean, quaffable white, with grapey, peachy and perfumed mineral character. Medium-bodied, with a fresh, fruity finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made. –JC" -Rated 87, Wine Spectator
"The 2008 Lugana San Benedetto shows terrific harmony and balance in the way the wine’s minerality supports the fruit. The finish is long, pure and refined, proving just how rewarding top-flight Lugana can be. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2012.
This is a compelling set of value-priced wines from Zenato, one of Veneto’s leading properties." -Rated 89, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
