Natalie's Score: 91/100

Full-bodied, juicy and tasty with attractive dark red berries and cedar smoke. Perfect for so many dishes with robust flavours. Lots of mouth-watering acidity. Pair with pastas in meat sauce or sausages. Great value in this robust Italian red wine from the Valpolicella region that finishes with attractive black fruit notes.

Valpolicella food pairings: pasta in a thick tomato sauce, meat lasagna.

Reviews and Ratings

Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A family owned winery in Veneto, known for its high quality wines, Sergio Zenato founded Zenato winery in 1960 along with his wife; today their two kids work alongside them. This excellent value wine is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Sangiovese grapes; aged in oak for 12 months, it boasts notes of dark fruit and a hint of chocolate on the palate, with silky tannins and a subtle hint of smoke. Enjoy it with pasta Bolognese, Veal Saltinbocca, and roasted poultry.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted July 30th, 2017. Colour, pale purple, medium legs. Aromas and flavours of sour cherry, cinnamon and green almond. Taste, dry, medium plus mouthfeel, flavourful, easy drinking, mouthwatering. I drank it with left over cold BBQ chicken, fresh sliced tomato, with a good olive and red skinned potato salad.
This is another great Valpolicella from producer Zenato. Founded in 1960, Zenato is one of the most iconic and trusted names in all of wine industry. For more than half a century, Zenato has concentrated on making premium wine in Veneto. - Community Wine Reviews
