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.
Ruby red in color with intoxicating aromas of dried black cherry, cassis, truffles, chocolate fudge and tar. This wine is silky, luscious and complex, with a lingering finish.
Pair this wine osso bucco, Bordelaise sauces, meat ravioli, or grilled meats. Great with out Wild Boar alla Cacciatora, Cornish Hen Brasato al Vino Bianco, Mamma’s Beef Torte, Veal Osso Buco alla Milanese.
