Zenato Valpolicella Classico Superiore 2018
92/100 James Suckling : "Pleasant nose of ripe plums, together with hints of fresh cherries, black pepper, aromatic herbs and prunes. Full-to medium-bodied with a good bead of sweet fruit, riding firm, silky tannins. Long, controlled and well-balanced finish. Drink or hold."
A little more elegance here than the 2017. Fruit purity is an element that's been emphasized in this wine over recent vintages - its added to what was has been the best value Valpol on the market. A pleasure to drink. TC

The Zenato winery 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, with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season.
Founded in 1960 by Sergio and Carla Zenato, the Zenato winery was originally based on the production of quality wines from an indigenous varietal, Trebbiano di Lugana. Over time, the winery has been passed to Sergio and Carla’s children, who have maintained and expanded upon this vision. Their daughter Nadia currently handles the marketing and promotional activity for the company, while their son Alberto oversees all aspects of production, from the growing of the vines to the completion of the bottling process.
