Bertani Amarone Classico 1976

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting notes The wine has a deep, dark garnet colour. The classical cherry flavours of Amarone are immediately perceptible to the nose, with the preponderant notes of Marasca and sour cherry. The wine presents a great variety of characters, from fresh fruit to jamlike tones, which offer a very harmonious aftertaste, alternating with spicy elements. The ample nose has a sweet impact and spreads in a continuous chain of sensations. The wine opens up in the mouth with aftertastes of all the red-berry fruits, besides vanilla on soft, heavy-duty cloth. Wine maker notes GRAPE VARIETIES: Corvina Veronese 70%, Rondinella 25%, Molinara 5% AREA OF PRODUCTION: Bertani¡¯s Novare estate in the Valpolicella Classico area. Valleys sorrounded by the natural breath of woods , the marl-calcareous soil make these vineyards ideal for the production of grapes for the Amarone. VINIFICATION: A selection of the best, perfectly ripe and healthy bunches was then transported to the loft - extremely airy rooms situated in the wine cellar garret - and laid out on cane mats. After about 120 days withering the grapes lost about 33% of their weight , while there was an increase in the sugar degree (24 babo). On January 2nd the grapes were pressed and the must was left to ferment on the skin to increase the degree of extraction of polyphenolic substances. During the slow fermentation part of the residual sugar was transformed into alcohol and glicerine. The latter has the influent task to mellow the exuberance of Amarone which then acquires elegance and softness.

Bertani:
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
