Alpha Zeta `A` Amarone

Alpha Zeta was started in 19 9 when Liberty Wines set out to
produce a range of modern, fruit driven wines from the hil s outside
Verona. Working with leading New Zealand winemaker, Mat
Thomson, 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 Mat ís expertise, preserve these flavours in the
finished wines. The result is a realisation of the potential inherent in
Veronese viniculture.
The vineyards are situated in the hil s outside Verona in the
Valpantena Val ey. Cool cur ents blow down the val ey from the
foothil s of the Dolomites, which helps to moderate the climate, enabling the grapes to ripen slowly. This helps the grapes to retain
their aromatic compounds and acidity. The soil is a mixture of clay
and limestone with good drainage. The vineyards are south-facing
and therefore warmer than other parts of Valpolicella.
