RIPASSO A DELLA VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE
RIPASSA

This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. 

AMARONE DELLA  VALPOLICELLA
CLASSICO

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).

CORVINA VERONESE
CRESASSO

Made from Corvina Veronese, this single-vineyard designate wine is deeply connected to the land where it is grown.

AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA
RISERVA SERGIO ZENATO

Produced only in top vintages, this graceful 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.

Zenato’s awards’ update

Falstaff Amarone and Recioto Trophy

We are glad to inform you that the Lugana Riserva Sergio Zenato 2019 received a
Silver Medal Decanter and 92 Points Vinous.

Well done!

This Lugana Riserva is the fruit of the Zenato family’s genuine passion and a reflection of their history in the appellation.

The grapes for this wine come from the oldest vines on their Podere Massoni farm. They are harvested slightly late, around mid-October.

Fermentation takes place in oak cask (70%) and stainless steel (30%).

Light brilliant gold in color, this wine delivers intense multi-faceted aromas on the nose, with floral and citrus notes, spices, white plum, and vanilla.

On the palate, it’s rich in flavor, with great depth and balance.
An ideal white for aging.

Tastingnote: 

“Fresh strawberry, sweet herbs, roses and smoke create an inviting display as the 2019 Lambrusco di Sorbara Lariserva opens up in the glass. This displays silky textures and a stimulating bead of fine bubbles, accentuated by brilliant acidity and tart orchard fruits. It’s savory, almost salty and buzzing with residual tension through the long, mouthwatering finale.” – Eric Guido

Tastingnote:

“The 2020 Lambrusco di Sorbara Radice presents a savory display of dusty rose, ginger and sour melon. It’s silky-smooth and textural, as a tug-of-war between sweet and sour plays upon the senses. Minerals, tart apples, wild herbs and spices resonate throughout, as this finishes long yet with cheek-puckering freshness. The decidedly dry Radice is made from the Sorbara grape, which is re-fermented to dryness in bottle, creating a ‘frizzante’ style.” -Eric Guido

Tastingnote: 

“The 2020 Lambrusco di Sorbara Leclisse is lifted and floral with nuances of strawberry, savory spice and incense. Its silken bubbles are quickly firmed up by a mix of salty minerals and acids, as citrus-tinged orchard fruits add further tension through the mediu-length finale. The Leclisse is produced by the charmat method, and it spends three months resting on the lees prior to bottling.” – Eric Guido
