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. 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 bottles before being released.
Classy wine, born only in the vintages of excellence. The Corvina and Rondinella grapes are selected in the oldest vineyards of the classic area of Valpolicella in the municipality of Sant’Ambrogio. The winemaking technique of Amarone Zenato is followed by a long aging for at least 4 years in Slavonian oak barrels.
It is a wine with a compact, bright color; it expresses all the characteristics of its territory of origin with a complex and spicy olfactory elegance.
As soon as the dried grapes for the winery’s Amarone have completed fermentation, a top selection of Valpolicella grapes “passes over” (ripassa) the Amarone pomace, thus resulting in a second brief fermentation. This helps to obtain higher alcohol content, deeper color, and rich flavor and aroma. Af-ter aging in French tonneaux for 18-20 months, the wine is cellared for another 6 months in bottle before release. The process makes for a refined and concentrated wine, extremely smooth and vel-vety, with vibrant red fruit aromas.
