Alanera Appassimento, Zenato

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 Zenato family is passionate in their dedication, vigorous research and innovation with Sergio and his wife Carla as producing quality wines from indigenous varietals.

Alanera is a tribute to Sergio’s legacy of bringing understanding, wisdom and rigorous work to viticulture in Valpolicella. Alanera’s fruit hails from the Costalunga vineyard. The site’s landscape is remarkable as it overlooks the city of Verona, while partly hugging Lake Garda and being seemingly embraced by the impressive Monte Baldo and Lessinian mountain ranges.

Alanera’s Three Swallows serve as a symbol to these landscape elements as well to its trio of native grapes: Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone.

A robust, juicy Italian red wine that uses the Appassimento method to dry grapes before fermentation to concentrate flavour and weight in the finished wine. Plenty of dark berry, chocolate and spice. Walnut undertone. Full body, round and velvety texture. Aromas of dark tart cherry, smoke and dried herbs on the finish.
