Alpha Zeta Amarone is a bold and sophisticated wine from the prestigious Valpolicella region in Veneto, Italy. This wine captures the essence of Amarone, showcasing the dedication and expertise of its winemakers.

The wine presents a deep, garnet red colour, promising intensity from the first glance. The nose is a delightful blend of dried cherries, figs, and plum, underscored by hints of dark chocolate, leather, and a touch of sweet spice. On the palate, it’s full-bodied and velvety. The tannins are smooth and well-integrated, leading to a long, luxurious finish with a touch of tobacco and earthy nuances.

Alpha Zeta Amarone is crafted using the traditional Appassimento method, where Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes are dried on straw mats to concentrate their sugars and flavors. After drying, the grapes are gently pressed and fermented, followed by a long aging period in oak barrels. This meticulous process results in a wine that’s rich, complex, and wonderfully balanced.

This wine can certainly stand up to robust food pairings. Enjoy it with a classic beef Wellington, osso buco, or mature cheeses like Parmigiano-Reggiano or Gorgonzola. For a vegetarian option, try it with mushroom lasagne or a truffle risotto.
