This wine has a green-straw yellow color, with elegant and appealing smell, a crisp, fruity taste that is also supple and rounded at the same time. For those who loves a more structured taste, Zenato produces also Lugana Riserva, also made from 100% Trebbiano di Lugana but fermented initially in barriques then matured in small oak for few months.
