Zenato Valpolicella Classico "Superior" 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Produced from vineyards in the historic zone in the commune of Sant’Ambrogio, from 85% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, and 5% Sangiovese. Production is traditional. The grapes are de-stemmed and lightly crushed, followed by a 6-7 day maceration on the skins. The wine is kept in steel until malolactic fermentation, followed by 12 months’ maturation in 33- and 55-hl Slavonian oak barrels. The nose offers supple fragrances of almonds and violets. Crisp and dry in the mouth, well structured, with a lovely, velvety texture. Ready to enjoy now, but can be cellared a few years.

Winemaker Notes - With a ruby red hue, it releases an elegant almond-scented bouquet, classicly Valpolicella; the palate shows dry and full-flavoured, with an excellent, velvet-contoured structure. Can be cellared several years.
