Sergio Zenato Amarone Classico della Valpolicella 2015

The high-quality approach to this wine begins in the vineyard as it is made from a strict selection of Corvina, Rondinella, Croatina, and Oseleta grapes grown in the Sant’ Ambrogio district. The grapes were harvested in September and October and dried for four months before fermentation. After being aged for 36 months in large barrels, the wine was refined for several months in bottle.

Tasting Notes

Ruby red in color, this Amarone Riserva offers dense and smokey aromas of dark cherries, raisins, chocolate, and anise, framed by fruity tannins and a spicy finish. With the level of complexity and balance that this wine shows, it will evolve beautifully for 10+ years.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with Beef Wellington, demi-glaces, fegato alla veneziana, or grilled red meat.
