Valpolicella: our passion.

In the land of Valpolicella Classica, in Sant'Ambrogio, amidst a succession of gentle hills behind the Veronese plain, are the 35 hectares of the Zenato's Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta vineyards. This is where Amarone is made, today considered one of the most valuable Veronese wines in the international panorama of wine making and one of the most important Italian red wines.

Ripassa Zenato is made by “repassing” Valpolicella wine over the pressed, withered grapes of Amarone. This is a significant mark of the science of wine making left by Sergio Zenato who, in the nineties, rediscovered an ancient method of Valpolicella by then long neglected, the "ripasso", and was the first to create a great wine that, since 2010, has held protected denomination of origin status.

The passion and interest for native vines, a precious heritage, has also given rise to two elegant wines with great character, the Cresasso, obtained by vinifying pure Corvina, and the Recioto, sweet wine, obtained by withering the Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta grapes.
