The Amarone della Valpolicella Classico from Zenato is made from grapes from the classic Valpolicella region and is the jewel in the Zenato family's wine production crown.
This Italian red wine is dark red, almost black in the glass. It overwhelms in the best possible way with voluminous elegance, dense, multi-layered aromas and a beautiful balance of fruit and tannin. A phenomenal length makes this Amarone irresistible. An exceptional red wine at an amazingly affordable price.
Vinification of the Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella
The Amarone is considered the top wine in the Veneto region. Its incredible variety of aromas comes from the strict selection of grapes from the Corvino, Rondinella and Sangiovese grape varieties. After 4 months of drying on straw mats and fermentation of these particularly concentrated grapes, the wine is aged for 30 months in French and Slavonian oak. The Amarone only leaves the Zenato family winery on Lake Garda after a further year in the bottle.
Wine recommendation for the Amarone from Zenato
The Amarone della Valpolicella Classico from Zenato is an excellent accompaniment to pasta dishes with ragu, porcini mushrooms and eggplants, braised meat and medium-aged cheeses.
