Bertani Amarone Classico 2000
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.

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.`
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90The 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.Wine Tasting NotesDry, full bodied and amply structured. Cherries, red berries and a hint of vanilla lead into a dazzling finish that recalls walnuts and hazelnuts.
