ZENATO Alanera - Alanera translates as "black wing," a reference to the raven, "corvino" in Italian, and an homage to the Valpolicella region's indigenous grape, "Corvina". A seductive wine that derives extra richness from an unique variation on the traditional appassimento method practiced throughout the zone. Full-bodied with elegant and velvety tannins, it's vibrant acidity brings a balance and freshness, and supports a lengthy and harmonious finish.
