Zenato Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico DOCG Veneto 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby red in color, intoxicating aromas of dried black cherries, cassis, truffles, and chocolate fudge leap out of the glass. the resulting wine is silky, luscious, and complex, with a lingering finish. Pair this wine with osso bucco, Bordelaise sauces, wild boar ravioli, or grilled cowboy ribeyes.

Three years in botte then one in bottle Fine bitter black nose, soil driven with old wood framing items, lots of medicinal licorice, a little orange peel, and almost minty character. Big on entry with lots of dry extract, you can feel this wine, though there are great acids and lovely soft supporting tannins supporting the masses of dark fruit that shows melted licorice and chocolate streaks to it. Laced with bitter cherry skins and a little mineral notes on the finish. finely textured if a bit chewy, this holds its alcohol very well. 90pts

The 2009 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a richly-layered wine with opulent tones of plum cake, cinnamon snap, jammy fruit and dark raisin. Theres a tight and focused nature to this wine that underlines its fine quality and aging potential. The extraction is there, and so are the tannins and acidic components. Spicy tobacco and leather last long in the mouth. The wine is aged 36 months in large oak casks. Drink 2015-2025. - Robert Parker 93 PointsThis opulent Amarone offers an alluring fragrance of dark fruit, raisin and toasted notes. The lush palate delivers black cherry, vanilla, black pepper and nutmeg flavors, with a hint of oak and tobacco. This is incredibly smooth, with velvety tannins. - Wine Enthusiast Magazine 93 Points
