AMARONE CLASSICO RISERVA 'SERGIO ZENATO'
Amarone Classico Riserva 'Sergio Zenato' is the jewel in the crown of the Zenato winery, one of Italy's most solid and appreciated wineries, an international institution, a pride of the Veneto region. The importance of this bottle, within the winery's award-winning range, is underlined by the name of 'Sergio Zenato', the recently deceased founder and progenitor.
Amarone Riserva "Sergio Zenato" is made only in the best vintages from a selection of Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta, hand-picked in small crates in the oldest vineyards of Sant'Ambrogio di Valpolicella, in the heart of the appellation. After harvesting, the grapes are left to dry in the fruttai for three to four months and, only in January, are pressed and left to ferment on the skins for 15/20 days. The wine matures in oak barrels for at least 4 years, then in bottles for at least 1 year.
Thanks to the long waiting time, the excellence of the vines and the work of the Zenato winery, Amarone Classico Riserva 'Sergio Zenato' is a splendid Amarone with a rich, intense and robust profile and great personality. The nose releases aromas of black cherry under spirits, ripe berries, spices and menthol notes. The taste is full, intense, with exuberant alcoholic strength and a dense tannic texture, with a long, enchanting, slightly almondy finish. An Amarone Riserva that bears all the personality of the great Veneto wine, with the soul of the Zenato winery.
