The Azienda Zenato has always forged strong links with local history and culture, both that of centuries past and that still forming today, and links just as deep with the land that gives them the wines they produce. Equally important to us is a passionate dedication to vigorous research and innovation, to relentless quality improvement. All of this has made Azienda Zenato an ambassador for quality, for dedication, for a frank and simple way of life.
Wine maker notes
Amarone, the small jewel in our product line, is rightly considered the king of Verona's wines, produced from the best grapes of the Valpolicella Classic area, carefully selected and dried in trays until January. Showing deep ruby red, it releases intense aromas laden with rich spice and dried fruit; in the mouth it is a wine of superb richness and majestic flavors.

Technical notes
Grape Varieties 80% corvina, 10% rondinella, 5% sangiovese, 5% molinara.

After being picked and carefully graded, the grape clusters are placed in shallow wood trays for about 5 months, leaving space for air circulation around the bunches. After fermentation on the skins, the wine is divided into 300-liter French oak barrels and Slavonian oak cases for maturation of about two and a half years, followed by a year’s aging in bottle before release.


Food pairing
Pairs perfectly with hearty game stews, roasted meats and mature cheeses.

Producer
The Zenato winery possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture, and continues to develop this connection today.

Cherishing a ‘frank and simple’ approach to life, Zenato is committed to producing affordable wine of exceptional quality. With a passion for the land and a dedication to vigorous research, innovation and quality improvement, Sergio Zenato strived to eclipse past results. He crafted wines that are known for their quality and consistency.
