Amarone della Valpolicella slightly damaged label 2004 Zenato
€ 59,29 (in Vat)
Readers who enjoy a sumptuous, full-bodied style of Amarone will find much to admire in Zenato’s 2004 Amarone. This big, richly-textured wine is loaded with dark fruit, licorice, spices, leather and chocolate, all of which flow from the glass in stunning style. The relatively high level of residual sugar (7.2 grams per liter) and aging in cask contribute to this wine’s traditional and very classic personality. Like the Valpolicella, the Amarone is 80% Corvina, 10% Sangiovese and 10% Rondinella. Simply put, this is a gem.
