A zesty northern Italian white wine with notes of grapefruit, lime and lemon zest. Racy acidity on the palate for shellfish.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:|
This wine is currently on the lips of moat sommeliers and wine nerds. Lugana, made from local Turbina (also called Verdicchio or Trebbiano di Lugana), garnered a lot of international attention when a railway expansion in Veneto threatened a chunk of the historic territory of where this wine was/is made.
Pretty and pale yellow with green flecks.
Aromas of green pear and apple. Lemon zest and melon.
Trademark Lugana acidity grabs your attention. Very fresh and snappy. Sweet pea, melon, pear, applesauce, and lemon candy on the palate. Very refreshing.
Confusion dogs the distinctions between the many grapes of Italy, sometimes. Trebbiano is a very large umbrella of varietals. Trebbiano Toscana (the bland grape also called Ugni Blanc) is NOT related to Trebbiano di Lugana (which is much tastier). However Treb di Lugana IS the same grape as Trebbiano di Soave (an ancillary, but growing, grape choice in Soave alongside Garganega).Treb di Lugana aaaaaand Treb di Soave are therefore genetically similar to Verdicchio.... Hope that clears everything up.
|From the Veneto wine region, Zenato San Benedetto Lugana (2016) is a great value Verdicchio wine with grapefruit, lime and lemon zest flavours with zesty acidity. This is a great wine to accompany rich seafood or dishes with creamy sauces. Pair with eggs Benedict. - Community Wine Reviews|
