Special notes

Selected Valpolicella grape clusters are harvested in early October and dried for up to 3 months in small crates on straw beds or shelves. Weight loss is about 25 to 40% of the grape's initial weight, which concentrates the sugars and the extracts. The grapes arepressed in January, then aged in barrels for many years.

    Amarone ist und bleibt einen der Lieblingsweine der Schweizer. Es steht für Prestige, besondere Momente, Italienità und Opulenz. Der Zeni gehört zu den absoluten Topproduzenten und betört seine Liebhaber vorallem mit seiner durchdringenden Fruchtsüsse, Schmelz und Wärme.
