The jewel of Zenato’s production:
Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is 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 January. Slow fermentation with skin contact follows and then the wine is aged for 36 months in large format Slavonian 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 components makes it ideal for longterm ageing.
Produced only in top vintages:
Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Riserva Sergio Zenato is produced only in top vintages. This great wine is made from a selection of Corvina and Rondinella grapes grown in the oldest vineyards in the township of Sant’Ambrogio in Valpolicella’s “classic” zone.
Following vinification, it undergoes long-term aging for at least 4 years in Slavonian oak casks.
It represents the very identity of the winery and its legacy throughout the world – a wine that can age and be enjoyed for more than 20 years.
With luminous and dense color, elegant complexity, and a wonderful touch of spice, it’s a wholehearted expression of the land where it is made.
