Winemaker Notes

Brilliant gold in color, Sergio Zenato Riserva Lugana offers an intense yet elegant floral bouquet. Beautifully layered on the palate, this wine tantalizes the senses with notes of stone fruit, vanilla and white flowers.

Pair this wine with rotisserie chicken, veal scallopini, calamari, and scampi.

Critical Acclaim

V 92
Vinous
The 2018 Lugana Riserva Sergio Zenato blossoms in the glass, as a whiff of vanilla bean and almond paste give way to a pretty mix of crushed yellow apples, nectarine and gingery spice. This is deeply textural, almost oily in feel, with a dense wave of mineral-tinged orchard fruits that coast along a core of brisk acidity. It leaves the palate reverberating with citrus tension, yet also an enriching air of custard that balances it all out. The Riserva is fermented in a combination of 70% oak casks, which adds amazing depth and body without taking away from the zesty character of the Trebbiano di Lugana variety, and in 30% stainless steel tank.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The Zenato 2018 Lugana Riserva Sergio Zenato is redolent of peach, baked apple and honeycomb. This medium-bodied wine from a 60-hectare vineyard site with clay soils is nicely textured and spicy. This wine paints a pretty portrait of the elaborate side of the Trebbiano di Lugana grape that is gaining in popularity. The Zenato family was one of the first to offer it. With handmade-looking paper labels, there were 18,000 numbered bottles released.

Wine Spectator
A rich and creamy white defined by vibrant acidity, this offers a fragrant range of lemon curd, poached apricot and pastry cream flavors with accents of smoke and toasted almond. Lingering, mineral- and herb-laced finish. Drink now through 2026.

Producing every style of wine and with great success, the Veneto is one of the most multi-faceted wine regions of Italy.

Veneto's appellation called Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of the region’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Amarone, a dry red, and Recioto, a sweet wine, follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing. The drying process results in intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral wines.

Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, yellow peach, melon or orange zest and have smoky and floral aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

Much of Italy’s Pinot grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

Compared to other white wine-producing varieties, Trebbiano claims some of the most vineyard acreage on a global scale. There are six distinct varieties with Trebbiano as part of their name in Italy alone. Trebbiano Toscano, one of the most popular, is deliciously light and crisp. Trebbiano d’Abruzzo actually has some aging potential when handled carefully. Somm Secret—Known as Ugni Blanc in France, Trebbiano is responsible for the whites in Southwest, France called Gascogne Blanc.
