Zenato are one of the best-loved and well-known wine families in the Veneto region of north-east Italy. Their wines are now somewhat mythically regarded as being benchmarks that cannot be surpassed. Based in two locations, they have the ability to age wines near the village of Negrar, as well as on the shores of Lake Garda in the town of Peschiera. This allows for cooler influences to prevent the wines from over-heating and means that although high alcohol levels and rich wines can be made, they are also allowed to be in balance and retain freshness. This Ripassa is an excellent example of their skill and shows that they have not lost sight of quality, even though the demand for this wonderful wine has never been higher.
