Zeni Rossara 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Rossara is an ancient indigenous grape in Trentino that produces pale, delicate, yet complex wines. The Zeni bottling has historically relies on an tiny ancient vineyard for their fruit though they now have a vineyard of recent plantings that is used to produced the wine, which is organic from 2013. Stemmy and sweet spice aromas greet the nose which has a lovely intensity and delicacy. On entry this is round, spicy, and lively with wonderful red cherry fruit, that leads to a long, mineral inflected finish. Medium light bodied, juicy and with modest tannins, this has an innate sweetness to it and killer refined spice aromas that linger in the mouth. It’s both pale and delicate so it won’t blow you away, but it will seduce you. 90pts
