Amarone Classico Bertani 2004
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.

Our wine has always been a reflection of the personality of the men and women who have made, and continue today to make Bertani an unmistakable wine with its own unique features, and a strong temperament that is the result of our historic vocation and our authentic and innovative know-how
I agree with Wine.com's review. The bouquet was very rich full of dried fruit and spices. It reminded me of a berry fruitcake! The best part was how full and smooth this wine was in the mouth. Nice finish. This was a unique experience to taste something so bold yet so smooth!
Bright red cherry and raspberry notes abound with some very nice balanced acidity. Subtle dark fruit with elegant, soft oak.
The unique aging process on this bottle is evident throughout the tasting. Smells of deep black cherry lead to a nicely fruited wine with great balance and flavor.

Amarone 1976 - Quarterly Review of Wines/ Coffee and bitter chocolate nose. In the mouth, lithe, lean, elegant and dark-toned. Very lovely.
