Zenato Valpolicella 2008
External Reviews for Zenato Valpolicella
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.
WA 89pts - Winemaker 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.
