Zenato Alanera 2013
In 2012, winemaker Alberto Zenato created Alanera. To the three Valpolicella grapes, he added five percent each of merlot and cabernet sauvignon ... He used the Amarone method of partially drying the grapes before fermentation: half were dried for 45 to 60 days, concentrating the juice, which accentuated the aromas and flavors ... blackberry, black pepper and vanilla aromas. Its medium-body is layered with red fruit and black raisin flavors stitched with soft tannins and mild acidity. Instantly likeable, the 2013 Zenato Alanera is New Worldish with its ripe, forward fruit and vanilla flavor from oak barrel aging, yet it avoids the offensive oaky, ultra ripe fruit and excessive alcohol that infects many Italian wines made with a preconceived idea of what the 'American palate' wants ...
