Zenato Lugana San Benedetto 2016

Veneto, ItalyIf all you know of trebbiano is the tart, thinner, green-hewn grape, you have to try this. This tribbiano di Lugana Zenato's flagship white, from their oldest vines in the Podere Massoni vineyard, near the south shores of Lake Garda. Sergio Zenato started the highly respected Veneto winery in 1960, and today his children Alberto and Nadia run the estate and winemaking. Pouring a light golden hue, this concentrated and potent fuller bodied white was fermented and aged in stainless on lees for 5 months. Scents of honey previews perfumed melon, gooseberry, fragrant pear, tangerine, toasted pine nut, and a cool mint note on the finish. Acidity is bright, carting this to a gentle, lingering finish. It's a striking array of flavours and richness, especially considering its 13 degrees.Tasted: 07 September 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 26.00 private wine shops Producer: Zenato, Az.
