Bertani Amarone Classico 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

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

    The 2000 Amarone (70% Corvina 25% Rondinella 5% Molinara) is big rich and sexy in the way it combines fresh vibrant rose petals red cherries and spices with a firm structured personality. Although it is not especially generous in its fruit it does offer notable poise in a powerful muscular style. Anticipated maturity: 2007 - 2012.`

Cherries, red berries and a hint of vanilla lead into a dazzling finish that recalls walnuts and hazelnuts.
