Bertani Amarone Della Valpolicella Valpantena
£42.50
An intense red colour, with garnet nuances. Firstly there are the typical notes of plum, cherry and morello cherry on the nose, followed by a great variety of tones: nuts, tea leaves, liquorice and spices. On the palate there are hints of red berry fruits, softened by plush vanilla notes, in perfect harmony with the acidity and tannins.

Description

Details

From its status as the father of Amarone to the presence of its Soave on the menu for King George VI’s coronation in 1937, the history of Bertani is awash with landmarks. Established at the time of the Risorgimento – the 19th century unification of Italy – it has been a symbol of that new nation’s pride and dynamism ever since. Arguably the most significant of those landmarks came in the 1950s, nearly a century after brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani founded the business at Quinto di Valpantena, north of Verona. 

The acquisition of the stunning Villa Novare in Valpolicella, along with its 220-hectare estate, led directly to the release, in 1958, of the first dry Amarone. A classic range of benchmark Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto, innovative modern styles such as BertaRosé and Due Uve, and an extensive library of old vintages: this family-owned winery continues to set standards for the entire region.
