2016 Zenato ‘Alanera’ Rosso Veronese
James Suckling 93: I love the brambly nuances to this red, which suggests forest floor, dried plums, dried herbs and cedar. Full-bodied and chewy with grainy tannins and spice undertones throughout. Long and beautiful. Drink now or hold.
Tasting Notes Brilliant ruby in color, Alanera delights the senses with a variety of aromas and flavors that include fresh and dried cherries and prunes, sweet spice, and hints of coffee and tobacco. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with elegant and velvety tannins. Vibrant acidity brings balance and freshness, and supports a long and harmonious finish.
