Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG 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).

The grapes are dried for 4 months and crushing is not carried out until Janu-ary. Slow fermentation with skin con-tact follows and then the wine is aged for 36 months in large-format Slavoni-an casks.

It is then aged in bottle before being released

This is a majestic wine, intense, and ethereal, with notes of bay leaf and distillate-cured cherries.

The impressive balance between all its com-ponents makes it ideal for long-term aging.
