Ruby red in color with intoxicating aromas of dried black cherry, cassis, truffles, chocolate fudge and tar. This wine is silky, luscious and complex, with a lingering finish, and pairs perfectly with hearty game stews, roasted meats and mature cheeses.

Wine Advocate

The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico boasts fabulous intensity and richness. This is an especially heady, port-like Amarone imbued with tons of depth. Chocolate, black cherries, leather and spices wrap around the serious, palate-staining finish. The 2007 needs quite a bit of time, but it is hugely promising. Readers who appreciate a big, powerful style of Amarone will love Zenato's 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.

Score: 94. —Antonio Galloni, February 2012.

Wine Spectator

Light tannins add subtle grip to this supple Amarone, framing flavors of sticky, sun-dried date, black cherry, and crushed black raspberry, with aromatic hints of sweet smoke, loose tea leaf and lots of ground spice. The finish is long and refined. Drink now through 2030. 1,250 cases imported.
