This wine was amazing. An intense, fragrant Amarone with characteristics of allspice and cherry cola. I decanted it for an hour and served it with fresh figs covered in honey and chunky Gorgonzola. I am saving my remaining bottles for the first snow fall.

Yes, absolutely. You should however decant the wine for about 2 hours before drinking.

Notes on the Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella 750ML 2003

Wine Maker Notes The most recent of our traditional wines, but at the same time the best known from the Verona area; a wine whose production method took more than fifty years of research to perfect. It is the product of selected grape bunches from specialised vineyards: the grapes undergo a lengthy natural drying process, followed by extremely slow fermentation in the harshest winter conditions. A long ageing process over a number of years in large oak casks gives the wine its extraordinary balance, which is so stable that it maintains its remarkable organoleptic qualities intact for many many years.

Technical Notes It ages for about 6 years in Slavonian oak casks (the capacity is from 60 hl) and an aging period of about 12 months in the bottle.

Food Pairing It goes well with red meat, game and mature cheese, but is also the perfect companion at the end of a meal and for meditation.

Additional Notes Amarone Classico Bertani is a timeless wine, in the unique style that Bertani has always striven care to preserve. A style that is classic, yet always up to date and therefore never needs to change. It is made from the Corvina and Rondinella grapes that grow on the slopes around Villa Novare in the Valpolicella Classica area, in vineyards where only grapes intended for appassimento are grown. Produced by Bertani since as long ago as 1958, Amarone Classico Bertani is a perfect example of total harmony between time, nature and man, and to it we devote all our skill and enthusiasm, all our patience and loving care. The natural appassimento (semidrying process) of the grapes on the “aréle” (cane mats) and the ageing in large casks for no less than six years give this wine a stable and long-lasting structure, making it one of the longest-living wines in the world.
