Zenato: Amarone in the TOP 100 of James Suckling

Zenato: Amarone in the TOP 100 of James Suckling: the Amarone Riserva Sergio Zenato 2016 reached the 24th place in the TOP 100 wines of James Suckling.

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.

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.

Perfect with roast meats, game, grilled steak and mature cheeses, but perfect for enjoyment without a meal.
