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.

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.

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.

Ruby-red in color tending toward garnet as the wine matures. Dry and robust on the palate with an excellent, velvety texture, this wine offers fleshy aromas of wild berries, currant, black cherry and spice, framed by intriguing hints of chocolate.

Amarone, the small jewel in our product line, is rightly considered the king of Verona's wines, produced from the best grapes of the Valpolicella Classic area, carefully selected and dried in trays until January. Showing deep ruby red.

Light tannins add subtle grip to this supple Amarone, framing flavors of sticky, sun-dried date, black cherry, and crushed black raspberry, with aromatic hints of sweet smoke, loose tea leaf and lots of ground spice. The finish is long and refined. D... Wine Spectator. A Proprietary Blend wine from Veneto in Italy. 2007 Zenato Amarone 750ml

Currant and plum, colored by a cappuccino note, follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, where the thick, fruity texture blends with lightly firm tannins to give a long, tasty finish. Drink now.

There's a symphony of flavors in this medium-bodied red, which offers ripe boysenberry and damson plum fruit overlaid by lovely rose and violet floral notes, with details of loamy espresso, anise and fresh herbs. A finely cut wine, with a velvety mouthfeel coating lightly chewy tannins and vivacious acidity. Drink now through 2022.
