Reviews and Ratings

Mark Britton rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A nice Amarone but Zeni makes many which are better. The alcohol is a bit strong on this particular wine. Very good wine though probably not worth the price point and Zeni is capable of much more.
Gabriel Israel reviewed this wine as follows:

Had a few outstanding Amarone in my life. The challenge with this wine is two fold - $$$ and food pairing.
When it comes to $$$ - this wine is relatively reasonably priced (again, relatively) for the quality that you get.
When it comes to food pairing - forget the 'regular' food - any 'regular' food will be 'crashed' under the mighty Amarone. So the basic principal of powerful food goes well with powerful wine very much apply here. Try it with a well seasoned couscous or with osso bucco marinated in port.
We tasted many wines and the one we enjoyed most was the ’06 Amarone Vigne Alte, with intensely sun-ripe, well-defined fruit. The palate is firm-bodied with distinctive, pleasantly husky tannins. Score: 2 Glasses (out of 3) Source: Gambero Rosso Italian Wines

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
