Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
Zenato’s Amarone della Valpolicella is a rich, dry Italian red wine from the Veneto region. It is produced from the Oseleta, Corvina, Rondinella, and Croatina grapes. The grapes are dried to concentrate their sugars and flavor to produce a richly layered wine. Zenato is one of the finest Amarone wines, with decadent flavors of dark fruits, coffee, and chocolate.
The jewel of Zenato’s production, this wine is made from a selection of top grapes from Valpolicella Classica grown in Sant’Ambrogio township (Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta, and Croatina).
The grapes are dried for 4 months and crushing is not carried out until Janu-ary. Slow fermentation with skin con-tact follows and then the wine is aged for 36 months in large-format Slavoni-an casks. It is then aged in bottle before being released
This is a majestic wine, intense, and ethereal, with notes of bay leaf and distillate-cured cherries. The impressive balance between all its com-ponents makes it ideal for long-term aging.
