At a local northern Italian restaurant. Dark purplish red in the glass. The nose is of cherry candy and old oak, like grandma's furniture. The bottle was served too warm and was chunky and cloying in the mouth, but as the temp came down to room temperature it became much more enjoyable, showing a full body and a mouth full of ripe black cherry fruit. The finish was dark chocolate and sour berries leading to a refreshed palate. I'd love to try this wine from a well stored stock.

On the nose, I found rich black cherry, a bit of florist shop and undergrowth. On the palate, I found more cherry with dark chocolate and bitters. The finish was vibrant and fresh with sour cherry fruit.

The Zenato family have a long tradition in the Lombardy and Veneto regions of Italy. Their cellars are situated in San Benedetto di Lugana on Lake Garda. Sergio Zenato is a master wine blender and is driven by his passion for quality. The Zenato Amraon is a made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese grapes from 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 for 21 days; the wine goes into 300-litre French barrels and Slavonian oak barrels for maturation. The wine is aged for 30 months before bottling. Considered to be the king of the Veronese wines, this is a generous and pleasing award winning wine. It has a ruby red colour with deep, ethereal bouquet of tobacco and chocolate and smoky, dried fruit aromas. A rich, lingering and spicy palate with strong yet smooth and supple tannins. We currently sell Amarone Zenato for £35.49 http://thewinestation.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1031

The Bardolino Zenato 2009 is a rubyred wine, transparant and reflecting nicely. the nose is powerful and open but starts fading rapidly in the glass. The character is fruity with some grenadine. In the mouth there is a lot less fruit, the acids are quite strong. The wine is low in tanins and has a lot of alcohol. There is a toch of bitter in the finish and the alcohol is disturbing (although only 12%). To be served with veal 'a la griglia'. Not impressive.

Agreed with last reviewer on the nose of ripe, black cheery candy and some cedar hint. Mid palette flavor is flat to slight sourness/dryness, that lingers briefly. It is worth may be 10-15 dolalrs the most. Definitely not over $20. This Ripassa taste like it is going down quick.

Clean scents of cherries fill this soft, round ripasso, then the tannins leave a sharp edge, needing roast meats to balance them.

The nose offers supple fragrances of almonds and violets. Crisp and dry in the mouth, well structured, with a lovely, velvety texture.

The 2006 Valpolicella Classico Ripassa reveals lovely clarity and precision in its perfumed dark fruit. This vibrant, poised Valpolicella offers tons of depth and a long, refreshing finish. Zenato's Valpolicella is made from 80% Corvina, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Rondinella, and is aged in small French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2014.

Made by running the Valpolicella wine over the pressings (or pomace) of the firm's Amarones (this triggering a second fermentation and adding additional depth and body), the 2003 Valpolicella Ripassa offers enticing notes of melted road tar, truffles, chocolate, jammy blackberry and cherry fruit, and grilled almonds. Full-bodied, intense, powerful, and beautifully balanced, it will drink well for 3-4 years.
