One of Italy's great underrated whites, this has a generous nose of lemon, apple custard, vague almond and star fruit...

A perfumed-floral expression of Zenato's reliable Lugana, light, crisp and brisk, with modest depth and complexity...

Crisp, clean, refreshing with layers of flavours

Description: Light gold in colour with a medium to medium+ intense nose. This wine features honeysuckle, apricot, Asian pear, grapefruit, green apple, peach pit, limestone and a touch almond. Medium body with good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: This could easily pass for a Viognier. Don’t over chill as it will loose it’s underneath layers.

Thanks to Maria from LCBO for recommending this wine to me.

Drink now or in the next 3-5 years on its own or pair it with Trout with Garlic Lemon Butter Herb Sauce.

Tasted: 21 February 2016

Here's a solid, typically food-friendly Italian white made by a solid, reliable producer. And it's very good, if not terribly exciting. Made from the Trebbiano di Lugana grape (Turbiana) on the south coast of Lake Garda, it offers notes of lemon, apple, and stone fruit, with almond providing that characteristic Italian touch. It's zippy and refreshing but also quite restrained, a touch of elegance elevating it above the basic. While not terribly complex, it does have decent flavour depth and impressive length, crispness but also nice body. Nicely done, overall, even if it falls a bit short.
