Majestic and velvety, with rich fruity dried grape tones. The grapes for the Zonin Amarone wine are semi-dried on trays, in well-ventilated rooms, for about 120 days. The must is macerated on the skins for seven to eight days and vinification ensues at a low temperature. Fermentation is long and slow, lasting from four to six weeks. The wine then matures in 30-hectoliter (792 gallons) Slavonian oak barrels for two years, and for a further six months in the bottle before being released onto the market.
