The real excitement starts when you get this in your glass. A quick swirl opens up layers of blueberry and dark cherry on the nose and leads to an insanely plush palate of dark red and blue fruit — we’re talking velvety smooth! I’m thoroughly charmed by the Amarone and Ripasso-like nuance of this wine — especially remarkable from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc! Although it’s not as rich as an Amarone or Ripasso, the Evaluna certainly shows its direct lineage from the winemaking style of the Zenato family.

This review from James Suckling sums it up very nicely:

93 Points: James Suckling – November 2019

“This shows real energy and focus from the get-go, showing fascinating aromas of blueberry tea, citrus and lavender with herb undertones. Medium to full body, loads of sweet-and-sour character and a very tangy and fruity finish. A fun, exciting wine. Drink now.” (93 pts.)

A Baby Super Amarone? I confess, we recently coined that phrase while tasting a sample of the Evaluna with our supplier. After the first swirl and sip, I remarked, “Wow, that’s like a baby Amarone!” One of the staff then observed, “Yes, but it’s made with grapes that would be in a Super Tuscan.”

Then we all agreed that it’s a ‘Baby Amarone’!
