The second short fermentation enriches this Venetian wine in aroma, structure and softness, making it one of the most important wines of the Zenato winery.

At this point the Valpolicella is "passed over" on the Amarone pomace with a stay of 7-8 days at a temperature of 25-28 ° C. This is followed by an aging period of 18 months in tonneaux and a refinement in the bottle for a few months in controlled temperature environments
