With the mild climate given by the influence of Garda Lake, the territories of Valopolicella offer the right habitat for the cultivation of local grapes that produce important wines like Amarone Zenato, a Veneto red wine with unique features and special aromas. Guyot is the main training method, chosen to ensure the production volumes that, in the last 20 years reach 80 quintals. The grapes grew on lands with good exposition and with an elevation that swings between 300-350 metres are harvested at the beginning of October. After a manual selection and a period of drying, in January starts the pressing, followed by fermentation on skins that last around 20 days. The aging is managed in special oak barrels for a period that can reach till 4 years. The maturation in the bottle represents the last step, where the wine, after the bottling, rests in the dark for a year.
“Zenato wine” is the way some Anglo-Saxon countries identify these classy bottles that can contain red, white or prestigious sparkling wine, characterized by sensations of exotic fruits and almonds. After the famous Zenato Valpolicella, we can’ forget to mention the Rosè produced by this winery, with its red colour full of coral shades. The blend is composed by different percentages of Corvina, Rondinella and Merlo, in order to give the perfect balance and the right minerality. Zenato red wines like Recioto Classico have some deep red colours that recall garnet, with and intense and spicy scent of cherry, plum and wild berries.
