ZENATO Amarone della Valpolicella 2009 $59.
Veneto, Italy
80% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 10% Other.

Respected Veneto producer using modern wine-making techniques.
Wine Spectator 92 rating says “Subdued notes of dried black cherry, prune, dark chocolate and grilled herb…in this tightly knit, balanced red. The sinewy tannins lend some muscle. Should benefit from short-term cellaring. Best from 2017 through 2027.”
