Very aromatic, pushing out aromas of dried red and black fruit, including dried blueberries and dates, together with a nice, spicy layer of nutmeg and pressed flowers. Full-bodied with an amazingly harmonious texture to the palate, thanks to the dense, very fine tannins that also provide super length. There’s a bright, saline mineral note that kicks in and pushes the finish even further. Exquisite Amarone. Drink or hold.

95 International Wine Report

The 2018 Amarone della Valpolicella from Zenato is a fantastic showing. It opens to inviting aromatics of dark cherries and ripe plums along with chocolate covered raisins, candied flowers, herbs and hints of dried tobacco that all emerge from the glass. On the palate this possesses a medium-plus body with excellent poise and freshness, as it gives way to a ripe core laced with flavors of berries and plums along with sweet spices and chocolate covered raisins that continue to linger on the supple finish. Delicious now and should evolve nicely over the next few years.
