Amarone Riserva Sergio Zenato is produced only during excellent vintages, from a selection of the best Corvina and Rondinella grapes from the oldest vineyards in Sant Ambrogio in the heart of the classic Valpolicella zone. An extremely powerful wine that retains great balance and elegance. A must try for all Amarone fans!
James Suckling (98 Points) - 'An Amarone for the future with terrific richness and tannin power, offering dried fruit, figs, blackberries, bark, mushrooms and hints of wood. Full-bodied and very structured with a powerful finish. It needs a lot of time to come around. Try it after 2024'.
Eric Guido - Vinous (95 Points) - 'The 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Sergio Zenato is a massive and towering expression that straddles both savoury and sweet with a heady display of plum sauce and crushed raspberries complemented by mentholated herbs, liquorice and balsamic spice. There are depths of fresh red and black fruits that gain a polished feel as they coast across velvety textures, while vibrant acidity adds verve, further contrasted by a bitter twang of baker’s chocolate. There’s so much going on here that you hardly notice the 2015’s formidable structure up until the very end, where hints of cumin and ginger linger under an air of violet florals. I believe this opulent beauty deserves an official “Wow.” Drink the 2015 now for its primal intensity and extroverted fruit, or put it away for upwards of a decade. It’s a gorgeous Amarone Riserva'.
