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.
Red Blend – 80% Corvina Veronese and 20% Rondinella./ ABV 15%

The grapes come from the Tenuta Novare vineyards at Arbizzano di Negrar, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica area, with calcareous-marl soils, devoted exclusively to the production of Amarone.
The harvest is done by hand in the second week of September. After careful bunch selection, the grapes are taken to the drying rooms and laid in a single layer on bamboo racks. They remain here for about 120 days to gain better concentration, favouring the development of a rich aromatic profile. In mid-January the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Maceration at 4-5°C for about 20 days, then a slow fermentation starts – about 30 days in concrete vats at a maximum temperature of 18°C.
Amarone Classico Bertani ages in Slavonian oak barrels, with an average capacity of 60 hl, for about six years. Then it matures in the bottle for at least 12 months.
It can be drunk with red meat, game, mature cheeses, but it is also perfect as a meditation wine at the end of a meal.
