In 1921 Ezra Pound wrote to James Joyce from a hotel that still today overlooks Sirmione’s harbour on Lake Garda: “Dear Joyce, I’d like you to spend a week here with me. The location is well worth the journey – both Catullus and I can guarantee it!” Lake Garda is biggest lake in Italy and one of the most visited places in Italy. Just east from Lake Garda, in the Verona province, there is a region called Valpolicella. This hilly agricultural region is famous for wine production. You probably came across the most famous wine of the region: the Amarone. In the heart of Valpolicella, there is a great winery, representing all its values and tradition.
Fruits of passion
Every Zenato wine is the fruit of the untiring commitment to excellence as well as boundless passion for the territory and the surprising potential of its native vines.
Each bunch of grapes is harvested with great care, by hand, to keep its precious nectar intact. Production is kept below the maximum limit allowed by the regulations in order to guarantee the quality of the grapes through the care lavished on the vineyard. Every harvest takes place in respect of the natural time and traditional knowledge, yet still taking advantage of innovative methods.
Inside the cellars, every Zenato wine follows its proper course: the must is preserved in order to promote optimal fermentation and then refined, aged and bottled. Special care is given to the choice of the bottles, in which the wine is best preserved in order to present its essence intact at the moment of tasting.
Year after year, the fruits of the passion of Zenato are different in order to always remain themselves.
In this way, the soul of Lugana and the heart of Valpolicella continue to expand their borders. Check our eShop for the Cormí and the great Ripassa della Valpolicella Classico from Zenato.
