  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 88

    Dark ruby in color, with intense aromas of raisin, raspberry and wet earth and hints of meat. Medium- to full-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Needs a bit more length at the end to be outstanding. Drink now. 6,500 cases made.

  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89

    Full ruby-red. Rather cool aromas of dried fruits and dried flowers, with a distinctly youthful, grapey aspect. Very rich and concentrated; the wine's intense black fruit flavors are given clarity by firm but harmonious acids. Has structure and grip. Long, palate-staining finish features ripe tannins. Larger-scaled than the '91 Amarone from this producer. (Winebow)

  • Zenato is a large family business, run by father Sergio and children Alberto and Nadia, which despite its size has built up a reputation for good quality wines. They operate as a commerciante (negociant), producing wine from brought-in grapes, as well as running their own estate in Lugana.

    The wines produced include a top-flight Amarone as well as a ripasso method Valpolicella which is labelled as Ripassa, because problems with copyright on the term ripasso. At their own estate they also grow a number of international varieties including Cabernet and Chardonnay, and the native Trebbiano.
    Located in the northeast of the country, the Veneto is Italy's third-largest wine region. It reaches from the slopes of the Dolomites in the north to the marshes in the south along the Adriatic Sea. The Veneto has three DOCG wines including Recioto di Soave, Soave Superiore, and Bardolino Superiore, as well as  22 DOs, including Valpolicella and Amarone. Valpolicella is traditionally a blend of Corvina Veronese, Rondinella, and Molinara. The Amarone della Valpolicella and Recioto della Valpolicella wines are made from  grapes that have been dried to produce rich, concentrated flavors.
