Wine of the Day: Zenato Lugana DOC San Benedetto White Wine

From the southern area surrounding picturesque Lake Garda, stradling the border of the Veneto and Lombardy regions of Italy, Lugana DOC is known for their lively, vibrant, effervescent white wines, produced primarily from the Trebbiano variety. With clay-filled soils and cooling winds off the expansive lake, the temperate microclimate is harmonious, allowing quality fruit to grow with vibrant acidity and freshness, with a delicate yet well-rounded, fruit-filled palate. Zenato Lugana San Benedetto Trebbiano di Lugana ($15) is crafted from hand-harvested fruit from vines averaging 25-30 years old, giving the stone fruit and citrus filled palate a note of earthiness, with touches of minerality. With an aromatic open of wisteria and honeysuckle, the soft, refined wine melds white peach, lemonade, and soft herbs, creating a delicious springtime wine.
