2012 Zenato Lugana

March 20, 2014 - Norman Bentley

Trebbiano is not that well known in this country, but this white Italian grape has a proud history in Europe, and its character almost speaks of warm sunny days. The 2012 Zenato Lugana is a good representation of the variety, as the Lugana wine growing region is the heart and soul of the Trebbiano grape. If you enjoy Pinot Grigio, this would be a good choice for you as well.

This is definitely a warm weather wine with a strong pungent fruit aroma, and flavors which are soft and round. The nose and the initial taste remind one of bananas mixed with mango and peach. There is also a slight hint of herbs and spice, with a soft pleasant finish. The wine was fermented in stainless steel, and has an alcohol content of 13.1%.

The Zenato Lugana is a good choice for a summertime sipper, or would pair well with salads, or a picnic lunch. Norm's score is 86.

Score: 86

Price: $10 -$14
