Zonin Amarone Della Valpolicella ABV 15.5% 750ml
The grapes are semi-dried on wooden racks and stored in wellventilated rooms for about 120 days. The must is macerated on the skins for seven to eight days following vinification at a low temperature. The fermentation process is long and slow, lasting four to six weeks. The wine then ages in 792 gallon Slavonian oak barrels for two years, and for an additional six months in the bottle before being released.
The bouquet is broad and nuanced, with scents of wild berries. The flavour is majestic and velvety, with richly fruity dried grape tones. A wine for accompanying refined dishes (especially prime cuts of meat) and very mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a meal.
