The Story

Amarone Classico Bertani is a timeless wine that expresses the unique style that Bertani has always dedicatedly pursued. It is a classic style that does not need to change because it is always up-to-date. Amarone is made from Corvina and Rondinella grapes grown in the Tenuta Novare  hills, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, in vineyards devoted entirely to producing drying grapes.

 

Bertani has been making Amarone Classico Bertani since 1958, it is the perfect harmony between time, nature and man: we devote all of our know-how and our passion to it, with a long waiting period and great care. The grapes are set aside to dry on the "aréle" (racks made from bamboo canes), according to the traditional production method. Fermentation in concrete and ageing in large barrels for at least six years give it a stable structure, making it one of the longest-lived red wines in the world.

 

The harvest is done by hand in the second week of September. After careful bunch selection, the grapes are taken to the drying rooms and laid in a single layer on bamboo racks. They remain here for about 120 days to gain better concentration, favouring the development of a rich aromatic profile. In mid-January the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Maceration at 4-5°C for about 20 days, then a slow fermentation starts – about 30 days in concrete vats at a maximum temperature of 18°C.

Written Notes

A wine close to perfection displaying a garnet red colour and brick red hue. Great aromatic finesse on the nose, roasted chestnuts, cigar box, cuban tobacco, candied dates, dried figs and prunes, hinte of very fine leather. On the palate sweet tannins, elegant character, perfect balance and excellent length. A wine which has kept a lot of freshness although the mature age. A wonderful experience.
