Deep coloured and perfumed, with aromas of rich fruit cake, dried cherries and plums which give way to a modern, rounded palate, fullbodied but nicely balanced with concentrated plum pudding characters offset by an attractive smoky, vanilla spice from the oak ageing. Rich but still fresh on the finish.

Alpha Zeta was started in 1999 when Liberty Wines, working with leading New Zealand winemaker Matt Thomson, set out to produce a range of modern, fruit driven wines from the hills outside Verona. Our aim was to work with growers (rather than buy bulk wine, which is standard among most wines from Verona at this price) to obtain ripe grapes (by reducing yields and picking later) and then, using Matt's expertise, preserve these flavours in the finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in Veronese viniculture.

Selected grapes were picked in mid September and left to dry in specially ventilated rooms until the end of January. During this process the grapes lost about 40% of their natural weight. The grapes were destemmed and crushed at the end of January. Fermentation temperature was between 18°-22°C with daily periodic pumping over, while the length of maceration was 20 days.

This Amarone was matured in oak (a mixture of large 'botti' and French oak barriques) for 18 months, lightly fined with egg-whites and then bottled.

70% Corvina Veronese, 25% Rondinella, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon
