Tasting Notes For Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella 2017
Our Amarone is a complex, elegant and velvety wine with great structure. It is produced from grapes cultivated in the classic zone of Valpolicella, in the municipality of S. Ambrogio, a land abounding with significance, tradition and the culture of food and wine.
The grapes, after harvesting and careful selection, are left to rest in the drying loft for a period of between 3 and 4 months in crates, taking care over the spacing between the bunches to promote the correct drying. The dried grapes are then pressed and macerated in the skins for 15-20 days at a temperature of 23-25°C. The new wine is aged in oak casks for a minimum period of 36 months.
The color is red, becoming garnet red with ageing. On the nose, elegant and spicy with hints of cherry, Marasca cherry, dry fruit and prunes On the palate, rounded, velvety, enveloping and soft.
Serve at 18°C, uncork at least one hour before. Recommended with roasted meat, grilled meat, game and mature cheeses or enjoyed without a meal
