About the wine
Bertani’s impact on Veneto winemaking, particularly in Amarone production, is so considerable that ‘Bertani’ and ‘Amarone’ are nearly synonymous. Their 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. While respectful of their past, Bertani strives towards innovation, using progressive techniques and equipment allied with extensive experience and a deeply felt respect for tradition to provide wines of uncompromising quality.
The grapes come from the Tenuta Novare vineyards at Arbizzano di Negrar, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area. Their 220 ha vineyards are covered with calcareous-marl soils and are devoted exclusively to the production of Amarone.
Aging: 6 years in Slavonian oak barrels. 12 months in bottle before release.
Tasting notes: Firstly there are the typical notes of plum, cherry, and morello cherry on the nose, followed by a great variety of tones: nuts, tea leaves, licorice, and spices. On the palate, there are hints of red berry fruits, softened by plush vanilla notes, in perfect harmony with the acidity and tannins. It can be drunk with red meat, game, mature cheeses, but it is also perfect as a meditation wine at the end of a meal.
