Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Corvina Veronese blend is pleasant, medium body Valpolicella. The nose started with a strong wet earth note that was a bit of relief when it gave way to plummy fruit notes
with a slight floral note. The palate continued with dried plum-like note. Tannins are fine and chalky. Medium length finish. Great match for pizza, pasta or cheeses.
Ghislain Lalonde rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Zenato’s is just what the doctor ordered from and for Valpolicella. Takes the really ideal vintage, part 2015 generosity and part 2014 grip and turns it out expressly 2016. The fruit is full and pure for class and structure. Drink this now or wait on it. It depends on what you want. Fruit and freshness? Woven development and calm? Depende, depende. Drink 2018-2022. Tasted October 2018.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
