Natalie's Score: 91/100

Wine grapes for this full-bodied mostly Corvina Veronese with Rondinella and Corvinone red wine blend are hand-harvested and fermented in stainless-steel tank prior to ageing in oak barrels for one year. Look for ripe dark fruit, meaty, smoky, dark chocolate and savoury spice flavours silky, smooth and elegant on the palate. 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. Pair with pastas in meat sauce or sausages.

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

Reviews and Ratings

Zenato Superiore 2017 Valpolicella is a spicy and smoky red made with the traditional wine grapes for this style of red wine from the Veneto wine region. Wine grapes are hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel before being aged in oak for one year. Vibrant, ripe raspberry, baking spice, pepper, dark chocolate and smoky flavours on this elegant full-bodied red to pair with a sausage cassoulet. - Community Wine Reviews
