Zonin sources good fruit from the non-classico zone to make its 2010 Amarone della Valpolicella. This wine is not much different than the dozens of other Amarone wines on the market today. Yet the delivery here is clean and well-executed, thanks to the good growing conditions in 2010. The bouquet is piled high with aromas of dark cherry, wet earth, licorice and tobacco. This wine is more suitable for immediate consumption.

Wine maker notes
The grapes for this wine are semi-dried on trays, in well-ventilated rooms, for about 120 days. The must is macerated on the skins for seven to eight days and vinification ensues at a low temperature. Fermentation is long and slow, lasting from four to six weeks. The wine then matures in 30hectoliter (660 gallon) Slavonian oak barrels for two years, and for a further six months in bottle before being released onto the market.

Technical notes
ALCOHOL LEVEL 14.5% vol.

Food pairing
A wine for accompanying refined dishes (especially prime cuts of meat) and very mature cheeses. It can also be enjoyed on its own at the end of a meal.
