Product Details

Code: WZR75

The winery owns ninety-five hectares of vineyards in Lugana and Valpolicella, where the soil is morainic and the climate is mild. The winery was founded by Sergio Zenato and his wife, Carla, in 1960. Zenato makes wines that exemplify the founder’s passion for the land and its history, respect for the environment and devotion to promoting the local grape varieties for half a century. Zenato has entered into international markets and received the highest accolades from the wine industry’s leading experts, praise that reflects the way in which the company operates on a daily basis. Today, Zenato continues to look to the future and invest in development projects based in the areas of Valpolicella and Lugana.

As soon as the dried grapes for the winery’s Amarone have completed fermentation, a top selection of Valpolicella grapes “passes over” (ripassa) the Amarone pomace, thus resulting in a second brief fermentation. This helps to obtain higher alcohol content, deeper color, and rich flavor and aroma. After aging in French barrels for 18-20 months, the wine is cellared for another 6 months in bottle before release. 

Deep ruby-red in color, this wine shows intense aromas of blackberries and black currants underscored by aromas of spice pepper, and a hint of leather. On the palate, it delivers fruity notes and elegant tannin with hints of chocolate and spice.
