"This creamy Amarone shows lovely balance, with delicate spice and orange zest accents enlivening the flavors of black cherry puree, dried lavender, date and mineral. Well-knit tannins provide a supple frame."

Product Description:

"Zenato Amarone is a blend of Corvina and Rondinella, with a touch of Croatina and Oseleta. Corvina is prized not only for its intense marasca cherry flavor, but also its ability to withstand the 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 youthful fruitiness. All this attention to detail pays off in a wine that is immediately approachable yet unmistakably ageworthy." -Winery
