With the great love of wine and dedication to quality passed on to him by his father, in 1960 Sergio Zenato started up the company that today bears his name. Zenato is a company that possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture, and continues to develop this connection today. The estate is based in a territory that surrounds Lake Garda, an area with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season. The Zenato family is passionate in their dedication, vigorous research and innovation. The company started with Sergio Zenato and his wife Carla as they began to produce quality wines from an indigenous varietal, Trebbiano di Lugana, and it has been passed down through the generations to their children. Currently, their daughter Nadia handles the marketing and promotional activity for the company, and their son Alberto oversees all aspects of production, from the growing of the vines to the time when the bottling process is complete. Over time Zenato has explored another very important area of Italian wine production, Valpolicella, where they have dedicated endless efforts to the improvement and success of Amarone production, a wine of noble attributes and prestige. Zenato has entered into international markets and received the highest accolades from the wine industry’s leading experts. Today, Zenato continues to look forward and make investments to develop projects based both in the area of Valpolicella and the area of Lugana.
With a very dark ruby red color, this wine opens with an intense and complex array of fruity perfumes such as red fruits jam, wild cherry, licorice, tobacco, coffee and a balsamic hint in the end. The taste has a strong body a silky tannins, it’s soft and distinctively acid with an upcoming balance. Excellent long after aroma consistent with the wine’s back taste.
