SPECIFICATIONS

TASTING NOTES

The Bertani winery was founded in 1857 in Quinto di Valpantena, to the north of Verona in the heart of Valpolicella, by brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani. Tradition and innovation have always characterised the Bertani farm, which is surrounded by historic vineyards and new plantings, some of which have been converted to organic certification. Bertani’s Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is made from the historic blend of Corvina Veronese and Rondinella, grapes cultivated on iron-rich marl-limestone soil. After being selected and harvested, the bunches are rested in traditional drying lofts without any forcing in terms of temperature and humidity control. They are then placed to rest on mats for 120 days, followed by pressing and vinification. Ageing takes place in medium to large Slavonian oak barrels for 7 years. This is followed by bottle ageing for 1 year. A wine with great personality and elegance that appears deep red with garnet reflections in the glass. Typical notes of plum, cherry and morello cherry dominate on the nose, followed by tea leaf, liquorice and spices that develop on ageing. Hints of red berry fruit on the palate, sweetened by soft spicy notes, perfectly balanced with acidity and tannin. Read more Read less
THE WINERY

Bertani

Renowned for the production of excellent Veneto wines, the Bertani estate is located in Quinto di Valpantena, near Verona. The founders, Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani, combined enthusiasm and a pioneering spirit to produce fine, bold wines, thanks also to the French techniques of Professor Guyot, as learnt by Gaetano. With its two cellars and vineyards in the Valpantena Classica area and its estates in the Soave and Lake Garda areas, Bertani was one of the first Italian companies to promote the bottling of wine, with investments and advanced viticultural and winemaking production techniques. All while respecting the terroir and local culture. The recognition of excellence dates back to 1923, with the approval of the royal family. The more than 200 hectares of vineyards include the two historic Grezzana wine cellars, for vinification and bottling, and Tenuta Novare, near Arbizzano di Negrar. From these estates come two of Veneto's most sought-after red wines, Valpolicella Classico Superiore and Amarone, icons of the area. But production does not stop there: renowned white wines such as Soave also come from the Bertani estate. Name and address of producer/distributor: Bertani - Via Asiago, 1 - 37023 Grezzana VR. Products from this winery should be stored in a cool, dry place away from heat sources.
