Ruby red in color, this Amarone Riserva offers dense and smokey aromas of dark cherry, raisin, chocolate and tar, framed by fruity tannins and a spicy finish. This Riserva ensures quality by bearing Sergio Zenato’s signature.
Wine Advocate 94 points - The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Sergio Zenato takes a long and hard look at Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta and Croatina. This is a stunning wine with an oversized mouthfeel and unforgettable intensity. The bouquet pulls back to reveal black cherry, barbecue smoke, dried chocolate mocha, dark vanilla and spicy cinnamon cake. You definitely feel the thrust and the power of the alcohol, but the 2007 vintage delivers the rich extract and tannin to withstand it. Drink 2014-2024. (Oct 2013)

The grapes were harvested in September and October and raisined for four months before fermentation. After aging for 36 months in large barrels, the wine is refined for several months in bottle.
