Winemaker Notes

Made from a very strict selection of Corvina, Rondinella and Sangiovese grapes from the Sant'Ambrogio district. The grapes were harvested in September and October and raisined for fourmonths before fermentation. After aging for 36 months in large barrels, the wine is refined forseveral months in bottle.

Ruby red in color, this Amarone Riserva offers dense and smokey aromas of dark cherry, raisin,chocolate and tar, framed by fruity tannins and a spicy finish. This Riserva ensures quality bybearing Sergio Zenato's signature.

Critical Acclaim

WE 95
Wine Enthusiast
Gorgeous, rich and penetrating, this wine excels in terms of the elegance of its aromas. Layers of black fruit, spice, mesquite, beef jerkey, cola and soy sauce are perfectly integrated and the wine shows plump, ripe richness on the close. Promises to age 10 years or more.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Readers who enjoy a sumptuous, full-bodied style of Amarone will find much to admire in Zenato's 2004 Amarone. This big, richly-textured wine is loaded with dark fruit, licorice, spices, leather and chocolate, all of which flow from the glass in stunning style. The relatively high level of residual sugar (7.2 grams per liter) and aging in cask contribute to this wine's traditional and very classic personality. Like the Valpolicella, the Amarone is 80% Corvina, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Rondinella. Simply put, this is a gem. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2018.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Offers dried berries, with hints of treacle tart and slate. Full-bodied, with firm tannins and racy acidity. Dense, yet slightly reserved. Still needs time to open. Best after 2010.

Producing every style of wine and with great success, the Veneto is one of the most multi-faceted wine regions of Italy.

Veneto's appellation called Valpolicella (meaning “valley of cellars” in Italian) is a series of north to south valleys and is the source of the region’s best red wine with the same name. Valpolicella—the wine—is juicy, spicy, tart and packed full of red cherry flavors. Corvina makes up the backbone of the blend with Rondinella, Molinara, Croatina and others playing supporting roles. Amarone, a dry red, and Recioto, a sweet wine, follow the same blending patterns but are made from grapes left to dry for a few months before pressing. The drying process results in intense, full-bodied, heady and often, quite cerebral wines.

Soave, based on the indigenous Garganega grape, is the famous white here—made ultra popular in the 1970s at a time when quantity was more important than quality. Today one can find great values on whites from Soave, making it a perfect choice as an everyday sipper! But the more recent local, increased focus on low yields and high quality winemaking in the original Soave zone, now called Soave Classico, gives the real gems of the area. A fine Soave Classico will exhibit a round palate full of flavors such as ripe pear, yellow peach, melon or orange zest and have smoky and floral aromas and a sapid, fresh, mineral-driven finish.

Much of Italy’s Pinot grigio hails from the Veneto, where the crisp and refreshing style is easy to maintain; the ultra-popular sparkling wine, Prosecco, comes from here as well.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
