GamePasta DishesRed Meat
Zenato is a historic and well respected name in Northern Italy’s Veneto region. Sergio Zenato started the winery in 1960 and today the family tradition in winemaking is carried on by his children Alberto and Nadia. The estate produces a range of white and red wines.
Made from partially dried grapes. This Amarone is concentrated with aromas and flavours of preserved cherries and bay leaf. Superbly rich and plush on the palate with very soft creamy tannins and a lingering finish. Impressively balanced and can easily be enjoyed now, though has enough structure to age further in the bottle.
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 January. Slow fermentation with skin contact follows and then the wine is aged for 36 months in large-format Slavonian oak casks. It is then aged in bottle before being released.
