    Winemaker's Notes:

    #36 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

    Zenato Amarone is a blend of handpicked Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta, which are left to raisin in a well ventilated room until January. After pressing, the juice macerates with the skins for almost a month while fermenting into the delicious wine that is Amarone. The wine is then aged in French oak for about two years followed by one year in bottle. Enjoy now or cellar for future enjoyment.

    Ruby red in color with intoxicating aromas of dried black cherry, cassis, truffles, chocolate fudge and tar. This wine is silky, luscious and complex, with a lingering finish, and pairs perfectly with hearty game stews, roasted meats and mature cheeses.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Zenato's 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a massive, towering wine bursting with black cherries, dried flowers, herbs and leather. The wine's sheer concentration and richness have been achieved while maintaining considerable grace, even if this isn't the most subtle Amarone readers will come across. Still, it's impossible to deny the wine’s personality and class. This is a great effort from Zenato. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2026.

    The Wine Advocate

    Wonderful aromas of black licorice and blueberry lead to a full body, with juicy, round tannins. Luscious and decadent. Might be better on toast! A gorgeous wine, this is the real deal for Amarone. Why wait? But a little bottle age should really bring it together. Best after 2011.
