Cerasuolo d’ Abruzzo DOC 2022

Points
0

Grapes: 100% Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. Vinification is “in white” after a short cryomaceration in the press (6 hours) of the free-run must.
Nose: intense, moderately persistent, fine and delicate, floral notes that blend with ample aromas of fresh fruit such as cherry, strawberry and mango.
Taste: dry, quite warm, quite fresh and with a good structure with hints of cherry, strawberry, yellow plum, mango and a marked acidity reminiscent of pomegranate; savory with long persistence, balanced and harmonious.

TASTING NOTES:
“The 2022 Cerasuolo d’ Abruzzo seduces with a blend of cherries and spice complemented by mint and lavender. This is deeply textural yet energetic throughout, with zesty acidity guiding its rose-tinged strawberry fruits and sour citrus nuances that add lovely contrast. It finishes with a mineral twang full of youthful tension, ending with a liquorice and tart cranberry concentration. Lovely.”

AMARONE RISERVA SERGIO ZENATO 2017

“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.

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.”

CRESASSO CORVINA VERONESE 2017

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

Its intense, deep ruby red color tinges the glass as its thick, lingering legs slide down the edges.

On the nose, it delivers a spectrum of delicious and enchanting red fruit, blueberry, and blackberry notes that evolve into intense aromas of black cherry, cooked prune, and jam.

AMARONE VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO  2018

“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).

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 long-term aging.”

LUGANA SERGIO ZENATO 2020

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

The grapescome 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.”

LUGANA SAN BENEDETTO 2022

“Rich in personality and with great depth, this wine delivers a wide spectrum of fresh and complex aromas on the nose.

It’s full-bodied and full-flavored in the mouth, with notes that shift from dried apple and pineapple to pear and vanilla. Its long, brilliant finish lingers with delicious results.”

LUGANA METODO CLASSICO 2019

” Made with 100 percent Trebbiano di Lugana grapes, this classic method wine has intense straw yellow color and hints of gold.

With elegant lingering bubbles and creamy texture, it’s made from a top selection of grapes that give it clean and enchanting aromas with a touch of face powder.

On the palate, it’s balanced and enchanting, joyous but delicate, with a silky acidity that gives it focus and clarity.

Harvest for this wine takes place mid-September, with a careful selection of the fruit.”

VALPOLICELLA SUPERIORE  RIPASSA 2019

“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. 

On the palate, it delivers fruity notes and elegant tannin with hints of chocolate and spice. Ripassa has played a highly important role in the Zenato winery’s evolution over the years.”
