    Description

    A refined Italian wine with a great complexity by Bertani

    The estate

    The story of Bertani, one of the most important producers in the Veneto region, began in 1857 when two brothers, Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani, decided to settle in Quinto Di Valpantena, north of Verona, Italy. A student of the famous Professor Guyot, Gaetano Bertani set out to apply the techniques he had learned in Bordeaux to Italian wines, in tune with the innovative period that marked the advancement of modern viticulture, both in the vineyard and in the cellar. In 1958, Bertani became one of Italy's most famous names with the release of an iconic wine, Amarone.

    The vineyard

    Comprising 200 hectares of vines in one of the most prestigious areas of Valpolicella around Verona, Bertani's wines showcase the full character of their terroir.

    The wine

    The Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico 2012 is born on the great terroirs of Tenuta Novare. Located in the heart of the hills of the "Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOC" denomination, near the village of Arbizzano di Negrar, Tenuta Novare is situated in the province of Veneto, in the north-east of Italy. The vines are 20 years old on average and are planted on limestone and basalt soil.

    Vinification and aging

    Harvested when fully ripe, the grapes are left to dry on bamboo racks or "arele" for about 120 days. At the end of this process, which ends in January, the dried berries enhance the concentrated aromas and sugars. The wine is aged for at least 7 years in 60 hectolitre Slavonian oak barrels and then aged for at least a year in the bottle before being released onto the market.

    The blend

    Corvina Veronese (80%) and Rondinella (20%).

    The tasting

    Color

    The color is an intense red with garnet highlights.

    Nose

    The nose combines fruity fragrances (plum, cherry, Morello cherry) with notes of tea, liquorice and spices.

    Palate

    Elegant and well-balanced, the palate is seduced by this wine’s fruity (red fruits) and spicy notes.
