Palate Profile

Alpha Zeta A Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG is made from a carefully-selected blend of 70% Corvina, 25% Rondinella and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. After harvest the grapes are left to dry in specially-ventilated rooms for 3 months before the wine is made. 

Drying the grapes in this way gives a concentrated richness and depth to the wine that is highly-sought after. Perfumes are of dried cherries and blueberries, with notes of spiced autumn fruit compote.  A powerful but modern wine with a lovely balance of ripe tannins and spiced, savoury cherry fruit character.  Grilled meat, especially venison or ‘tagliata’ of beef, will bring out the best in this wine. Also great with game dishes, or even a hunk of quality hard cheese like Parmigiano Reggiano.

"A melange of sweet vanilla oak, plums and cherry stones are complemented by herbs and a touch of treacle. These flavours are offset by well-judged, gravelly tannins and bright acidity. A really pretty young wine. Stunning and great value".
