The Winery

Bertani

The Bertani wine company was founded in 1857 by two brothers, Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani, in Quinto di Valpantena to the north of Verona. Gaetano was already a wine-making expert, having learned the new techniques in France under Professor Guyot, who is still considered today to have been one of the greatest wine-making experts of all time. The start of the Bertani brothers' work coincided with a new spirit of innovation which inspired them to use the latest production techniques, in both grape-growing and wine-making; they applied these techniques to all the vineyards they owned at the time, in the Valpantena and in the Soave area, but always respecting the territory and local agricultural traditions.

Your rating for Bertani Amarone Classico 2011:Rate Bertani Amarone Classico 2011:

4 /5

- A deep garnet red colour witnesses the long barrel ageing.
- The first impression on the nose is of fresh black cherry aromas, leading into notes of maraschino cherry and plum.
- Immense depth and complexity on the palate: dried fruit, oolong tea, liquorice, spice, red-berry fruits, and a long velvety vanilla note on the finish.
- However, the key to this wine has got to be the sweetness level.
- It is genuinely dry, unlike many modern-style competitors.

Silky Amarone, the rich, textured dry red of the Veneto, like a savoury port, with flavours of prunes and Morello cherries and a heady bouquet of nuts, tobacco, dried flowers and sweet spices
