Zonin Amarone della Valpolicella 2019
The unique characteristics of the lands and soils of the Oltrepò Pavese area, the traditional vocation to the production of sparkling wines, and the Pinot Noir grapes grown here in an ideal environment assuring their best expression, are successfully put together through the Classic Method of which Oltrenero is the quintessence. Sparkling wines enhancing the nuances of the origin grapes starting from the vineyard, which is followed by paying attention to the diversity of the various plots and subsequently applying strict vinification procedures, which are respectful of the fruit variety. Hence the enchantment of a perfect encounter in terms of character, finesse and elegance, in which intense aromas and seductive traits convey the exact image of a place of magnificent generosity.
Amarone grapes are semi-dried on trays for about 120 days first, then macerated on the skins. This gives this rich and majestic wine its incredible texture and aromas of ripe and dried fruit. Then it is aged for 2 years in oak barrels and a further 6 months in the bottle for elegance and finesse.
Garnet-red with brilliant ruby reflections. This wine is broad and nuanced, with scents of wild berries. Majestic and velvety on the palate with richly fruity dried grape tones.
A wine for accompanying refined dishes (especially prime cuts of meat), and very mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a meal.
