The 2007 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva Sergio Zenato takes a long and hard look at Corvina, Rondinella, Oseleta and Croatina. This is a stunning wine with an oversized mouthfeel and unforgettable intensity. The bouquet pulls back to reveal black cherry, barbecue smoke, dried chocolate mocha, dark vanilla and spicy cinnamon cake. You definitely feel the thrust and the power of the alcohol, but the 2007 vintage delivers the rich extract and tannin to withstand it. Drink 2014-2024.
