About the Winery:
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. 


About this Wine:
Valpolicella has a continental climate with a strong Mediterranean influence due to the proximity of Lake Garda. In Summer, days are hot and humid and fresh and windy at night. The night weather contributes to the development of a typical peppery character in the wines from Valpolicella.

Vineyard soils in Valpolicella consist of white limestone (calcium carbonate) and red limestone soils (Iron + Manganese), which create salty (not mineral) wines.

The grapes come from the Tenuta Novare vineyards, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, and from the Valpantena vineyards, near the municipality of Grezzana. The vines are vertical-trellised, with Guyot pruning and a planting density of 2,024 plants per acre.

Tasting Notes & Food Pairing:

Bright hints of redcurrants, plums, raspberries, sour cherries balanced by spicy notes reminiscent of pepper and cinnamon. On the palate it is approachable, fresh and pleasant, thanks to good balance between acidity, savory notes and richness of flavor. It is excellent with strong flavored pasta dishes, grilled, roast and stewed meat and medium matured cheese.

"There's a mentholated freshness that keeps me coming back to the 2020 Valpolicella, as bright cherries, licorice and hints of smoke form its bouquet. It is soft-textured and pure, with red berries and minerals motivated by brisk acids. This leaves rosy florals and a gentle tug of tannin, making for a pleasantly dry finish." - Eric Guido (Apr 2022)
