RED WINE AMARONE CLASSICO ZENATO 2017 DESCRIPTION

In 1960 Sergio Zenato founded this company, driven by great passion for wine. The winery is located in a good position on the Veneto coast of Lake Garda and enjoys a very favorable microclimate for the cultivation of vines. After the harvest, after four months spent on wood trellises, the grapes are pressed, and starts the process of winemaking.
