Wow. Such a complex nose, with a base of dried cherry, spruced up with hints of mild coffee and walnuts. Then there are dried flowers, wild herbs and spices, such as tarragon and cloves. Subtle hints of dried banana and apricot, too. The palate is full, super sleek, intense and well-balanced, with tight, spice-coated tannins that drive everything forward. Long, long finish. Lovely to taste now, but this already almost ten-year-old will sit comfortably in your cellar for a long while yet.

93pts Wine Spectator

An elegant version, fresh and medium- to full-bodied, with crisp definition from fine-grained tannins, a rich, minerally baseline of fresh earth and iron, and a pleasing range of plumped cherry, raspberry paste, Earl Grey tea leaf and sandalwood notes that linger on the finish. Corvina and Rondinella. Drink now through 2032. 7,083 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.

Winemaker Notes

An iconic wine, full of personality, where elegance always prevails over power. Complex, balanced and well-orchestrated, with extraordinary longevity. An intense red color with garnet highlights. The nose is marked by typical notes of plum, cherry and morello, followed by tea leaves, licorice and spices. The palate reveals overtones of red berries, sweetened by soft spicy notes, in perfect balance with the acidity and tannins.

Blend: 80% Corvina Veronese, 20% Rondinella

Winery Notes

Bertani’s impact on Veneto wine making, particularly in Amarone production, is so considerable that ‘Bertani’ and ‘Amarone’ are nearly synonymous. Their 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. While respectful of their past, Bertani strives towards innovation, using progressive techniques and equipment allied with extensive experience and a deeply felt respect for tradition to provide wines of uncompromising quality.
