Wine of the Day: Zenato’s San Benedetto Lugana

Creamy and round on the back palate, with bright freshness and acidity, Zenato’s San Benedetto Lugana ($16) white wine is the perfect wine to enjoy throughout the cold winter months. From the northern Italian region of Lugana within the Lombardi region where vineyards have existed since 2000 B.C. and home to the signature white wine of the region, Trebbiano di Lugana. The lively wine opens with notes of lemon leaf and peach blossom, with a subtle mineral note keeping the wine interesting, followed by ripe stone fruit and citrus on the palate melding with creamy lemon curd, honey, and baked apple. A perfect wine with fish, chicken, creamy cheese, or lemon risotto, or simply enjoying on its own as an aperitif. #Cheers
