Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2009

Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 750ML 2009     
Sku: 21369

Zenato Amarone is a blend of the more traditionally used grapes, Corvina and Rondinella, with a touch of both Croatina and Oseleta, two ancient grapes being revived in the region. Corvina is prized not only for its intense marasca cherry flavor, but its ability to stand up under the drying process. Used in small quantities Rondinella also fares well in drying, and contributes dark color and an alluring floral note. Oseleta provides tannic structure and minerality while Croatina is introduced to add a certain youthful fruitiness. All this attention to detail pays off in a wine that is immediately approachable yet unmistakably ageworthy.

Tasting notes
Ruby red in color with intoxicating aromas of driedblack cherry, cassis, truffles, chocolate fudge and tar. This wine is silky, luscious and complex, with a lingering finish.

Rating
Wine Spectator 93 points The 2008 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico boasts fabulous intensity and richness. This is an especially heady, port-like Amarone imbued with tons of depth. Chocolate, black cherries, leather and spices wrap around the serious, palate-staining finish. The 2008 needs quite a bit of time, but it is hugely promising. Readers who appreciate a big, powerful style of Amarone will love Zenato’s 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027. ”

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