Amarone Riserva “Sergio Zenato” is produced only in excellent vintages, from a selection of grapes Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta, and Croatina coming from the oldest vineyards in Costalunga estate in Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella. The particular low yields have led to a wine of great concentration, with aroma of vanilla and fruits, an intense and long lasting taste.
80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 10% Oseleta and Croatina.
The grapes are left to raisin dry for 3-4 months in small trays (only one layer), well-spaced out to allow good air circulation. The wine pressing takes place in January through de-stemmer and pre-maceration of the skins on the must. Skin contact fermentation lasted 15-20 days, then the wine has been aged in 75 hl. Slavonian oak barrels for 48 months.
Follows conditioning in bottle for 1 year before being released.
Ideal with roasted meat, game, grilled steak and aged cheeses, but perfect as a meditation wine.
