BOSCAINI CARLO producer’s sheet

Born from the slopes of the hills, situated on the round of Sant’Ambrogio di Valpolicella, in the heart of the classic area of Valpolicella region. Zane comes from the time-honoured blend of corvina, corvinone and rondinella grapes, using the traditional method of refermenting or “ripasso” on Amarone’s skins of the grapes. It has a delicate flavour of red berry fruits with a hint of spices on the nose. It has a soft and well-rounded finish on the palate which makes it the ideal accompaniment to casseroles and red meat dishes.
