Zenato Cresasso 2006

Zenato Cresasso 750ml 2006      
Sku: 1882198*

Cresasso is named for the pebbly soil in which it is grown, ”sasso” translates as stone, and ”cre” is the prefix of cretaceous. While the terrain was far from easy to cultivate, the native Corvina Veronese reaches optimal ripeness here. Cresasso is the product of extensive study and patience on the part of the Zenato family who sought to craft a wine that truly encapsulates the uniqueness of this special terroir.

Tasting notes
Cresasso has a rich garnet color which sticks to the rim. On the nose, one senses red fruits such as tart black cherries, plums, and tobacco-all characteristic of the Corvina grape. On the palate the wine is soft and elegant, with Zenato’s trademark balance.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Feb 2011)
The 2006 Cresasso (Corvina) is a rich, opulent wine loaded with blackberry jam, flowers, chocolate and copious French oak. Hints of minerality emerge over time. Despite the wine’s textural richness, this isn’t a wine that offers a great deal in the way of complexity or subtlety. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2018.

Technical notes
Varietal Composition 100% Corvina

Other text
Today, the winery operates under a philosophy and mission of Quality (from the vineyard to the bottle and consumer), Passion and Tradition (respecting the roots of the territory and local culture).

Food pairing
fine match for all tasty and rich recipes. Ideal with grilled meats, roasts, game, sausages and salami. Delightful with ripe cheeses
