Description

The Lugana region sits along the shores of Lake Garda in the northern part of the country between Lombardy and Veneto. It is home to what has become one of my favorite white wine discoveries this past year. The wine is made from the Trebbiano di Lugana grape, historically called Turbiana. While once considered to be the same grape as Verdicchio, it has been proven to be a unique variation. San Benedetto is a specific parcel of vines owned by the Zenato family. Grapes come from vines that average 30 years, are manually harvested and fermented, as well as aged in stainless steel. It is a departure from the zesty, zingy whites I am usually drawn to. Instead, it appears reserved, elegant, with a softness that makes me feel like I am being hugged instead of slapped. With lemon and golden apple notes, fresh herbal tones, and an almost nuttiness on the finish, this wine is totally delicious, and at a reasonable 13% abv, is highly drinkable. - Noelle Starr
