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 four months before fermentation. After aging for 36 months in large barrels, the wine is refined for several 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 by bearing 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
The 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.

Zenato
Zenato is a company that possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture, and continues to develop this connection today. The estate is based in a territory that surrounds Lake Garda, an area with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season. The Zenato family is passionate in their dedication, vigorous research and innovation.

The company started with Sergio Zenato and his wife Carla as they began to produce quality wines from an indigenous varietal, Trebbiano di Lugana, and it has been passed down through the generations to their children. Currently, their daughter Nadia handles the marketing and promotional activity for the company, and their son Alberto oversees all aspects of production, from the growing of the vines to the time when the bottling process is complete.

Over time Zenato has explored another very important area of Italian wine production, Valpolicella, where they have dedicated endless efforts to the improvement and success of Amarone production, a wine of noble attributes and prestige. Zenato has entered into international markets and received the highest accolades from the wine industry's leading experts. Today, Zenato continues to look forward and make investments to develop projects based both in the area of Valpolicella and the area of Lugana.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
