Description

Established by prosperous wine merchants with a profound belief in the significance of quality winemaking, Bertani stands as a distinguished name in the wine industry. Investing in some of the finest vineyards in the province, Bertani took a unique approach by owning its vineyards, allowing for meticulous oversight throughout the winemaking process. This approach contributed to the early recognition and success of Bertani, positioning it as one of the pioneering Veronese producers to export wines on a significant scale.

In the late 1950s, Bertani once again took a leading role with the launch of a new-style Recioto della Valpolicella, transforming the traditionally sweet or sparkling red wine into the dry, opulent red now renowned as Amarone, an esteemed Italian red wine. Bertani’s commitment to innovation and tradition extends to the maintenance of extensive vineyards, where they enlist the skills of Italy’s eminent viticulturalists.

Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella Classico 2007, a true testament to their winemaking prowess, is crafted from carefully selected grape bunches harvested in their best Valpolicella vineyards. The grapes undergo a meticulous drying process on cane mats, losing up to 60% of their water content, contributing to the wine’s body and structure. The extended maceration period and aging in Slavonian oak casks for 5-8 years result in a world-class Amarone.

Classico 2007 is as an elegant version that finely knits supple tannins with flavors of dried cherry, fig, dried marjoram, hot stone, and bergamot. The wine’s lingering, spiced finish makes it a delightful choice to be enjoyed now through 2027. Bertani’s journey in Veronese winemaking serves as a fascinating and memorable introduction, where progressive techniques harmonize with extensive experience and a deep respect for tradition.
