The jewel of Zenato’s production, this wine is made from a selection of top grapes from Valpolicella Classica grown in Sant’Ambrogio township (Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta, and Croatina).
The grapes are dried for 4 months and crushing is not carried out until January. Slow fermentation with skin con-tact follows and then the wine is aged for 36 months in large-format Slavoni-an casks. It is then aged in bottle before being released. The impressive balance between all its components makes it ideal for long-term aging.
Tasting Note: This is a majestic wine, intense, and ethereal, with notes of bay leaf and distillate-cured cherries.
