Ventisquero – Pinot Noir Reserva, Casablanca Valley, 2013

This elegant Reserva Pinot Noir delivers a brightly coloured ruby red wine, fruit-driven by cherry and strawberry aromas with flavours of vanilla and tobacco from aging in French oak casks.

87 Points Wine Enthusiast (2010 vintage).
“With nonaggressive, lightly oaked aromas of raspberry, tea and spice, this bargain-priced Pinot gets off to a nice start. The palate is bright and has good flow, while flavors of tomato, red plum, raspberry and saline are full but reserved.” M.S.  (6/1/2012)

Product Information

Ripassa Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore.

This wine is closely connected to the greatest wine of Valpolicella: Amarone. After pressing the dried grapes from which Amarone is made, the Valpolicella wine is passed over the still warm marc of Amarone. A second alcoholic fermentation begins which increases the alcoholic content and the wine becomes richer in colour, bouquet

GRAPE VARIETY: 85% Corvina, 10% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta.

VINIFICATION The grapes are de-stemmed and macerated in stainless steel fermenters for 10-12 days. Once the alcoholic fermentation is completed, the new wine is separated from the skins by light pressing and conserved in large oak casks of 54 and 75 hectolitres until February; this is the period in which the dried grapes are pressed to produce Amarone. At this point, the Valpolicella is passed over the marc of the Amarone for a period of 7-8 days at a temperature of 25-28°C. The wine is aged for 18 months in 500 lt. oak casks and barrels.

Food combinations: Excellent companion to game dishes, grilled meat and roasts, salami and aged cheeses.

Zenato. The Soul of Lugana and the Heart of Valpolicella.

The heart and soul of Zenato lies in the ancient morainic lands of Lugana and Valpolicella, with their mild climate and unrivalled charm, that overlook the Veneto shore of Lake Garda.

The vineyards cover 75 hectares in the Zenato estate of S. Cristina in San Benedetto di Lugana, ideal for the Trebbiano di Lugana, and in the Costalunga estate in Valpolicella, the homeland of the famous Amarone Zenato, where the renowned vines Corvina, Rondinella and Oseleta are cultivated.

It all began in 1960 when Sergio Zenato, filled with energy and ambition and driven by his deep bond with the territory, tried out new techniques of wine making and invested in native vines in order to obtain wine of the highest quality.

Today, his wife Carla, together with their children Alberto and Nadia, continues to pursue Sergio’s great enterprise with the same enthusiasm, tenacity and infinite dedication, making the excellence of Zenato’s wines known in more than 60 countries of the world.

In this way, the soul of Lugana and the heart of Valpolicella continue to expand their borders.
