Zenato Lugana DOC San Benedetto 2020
A fresh white with a strong personality. Zenato Lugana DOC San Benedetto is made from a selection of the best grapes from the eponymous estate.
Pale lemon-green colour. San Benedetto Lugana offers appealing notes of peaches, citrus, bananas, and herbs, which are underscored by crisp acidity and supple body on the palate. Fresh and fruity bouquet of white florals. The full-bodied palate has a crisp acidity, great depth and rich personality. A wide spectrum of full flavours that shift from dried apple, white peaches and pineapple to pears, lemon citrus and vanilla. Closes with a long stoney mineral finish.
100% Trebbiano di Lugana. The grapes for this wine come from the San Benedetto parcel on the south shore of Lake Garda. The San Benedetto vineyards are some of the appellation’s most historic and are considered to be among its best. The vineyard has an altitude of 60–80 metres and a southeastern exposure. The vines grow in clay-loam soils with a guyot training system.
Harvesting by hand and a careful selection of grapes. Fermentation takes place for 20–25 days at a controlled temperature of 17–18°C in stainless steel tanks. After this, the wine goes through 6 months of bottle refinement before its release to the world.
Ageing Potential: Drink now or enjoy up to 10 years from vintage.
