Zenato Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2011
|Appellation||Amarone della Valpolicella|
Wine EnthusiastOpening with aromas of crushed violet, ripe plum and black pepper, this is one Amarone that seamlessly combines a hefty structure with finesse. The ripe, savory palate doles out juicy black cherry, blackberry jam, licorice, cake spice and tobacco alongside firm, velvety tannins that lend it a polished texture. Drink 2017-2026.
Wine SpectatorA pure note of lingonberry preserves heralds this finely knit, mouthwatering red. The ripe fruit is meshed with supple tannins and flavors of dried marjoram, dark chocolate shavings, rich, woodsy minerality and creamy melted licorice. Offers a lasting, harmonious finish.
