Zenato Corvina Blend Valpolicella Superiore Ripassa 2005
Amarone, the small jewel in our product line, is rightly considered the king of Veronas wines, produced from the best grapes of the Valpolicella Classic area, carefully selected and dried in trays. Showing deep ruby red, it releases intense aromas laden with rich spice and dried fruit; in the mouth it is a wine of superb richness and majestic flavors.
Perfect Winehouse very smooth. Needs Some air.

WS 90 Pts WE 90 Pts - Tasting Notes - The Amarone is a small jewel in Zenato's product line, made from outstanding corvina, rondinella and sangiovese grapes of the Valpolicella Classico zone, in the communes of Sant Ambrogio, Negrar, Pedemonte, Fumane, San Pietro in Cariano and Marano. After being picked into small, 2.5 kg trays, the grapes are cleaned and placed on drying mats for 4 months in dry, well-ventilated rooms. In January they are finally crushed, then very slowly fermented on the skins; the wine goes into 300-litre French barrels and Slavonian oak barrels for maturation, followed by a year s ageing in bottle before release. A wine of superb richness and majestic flavours. The exceptional balance of all its components makes it ideal for lengthy cellaring.
