Bertani Valpolicella 2005
Ripasso di Villa Novare is an intense, warm and friendly wine, supple and fruity. It is produced by the technique of refermenting Valpolicella on the skins of Amarone and Recioto, to which Bertani adds a small quantity of semi-dried grapes to make the wine’s fruity notes more intense and to give it added suppleness and freshness. This is a new interpretation of a traditional technique born of Bertani’s skill and culture. Undoubtedly a versatile wine in terms of the dishes it can accompany, since with its combination of fruit, suppleness and consistency it can play a variety of read more...roles. Purple red intense colour. At the nose scents of plum, cherry and black berries with a sweet spices and chocolate. In mouth is full, soft with flavour of red fruit and liquorice; sapid and spices in the lasting taste.
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've had other Ripassos and found this one to be pretty bland. The fruit is very dull and it has a relatively short finish.
Hay and leather, big, a little tart.
Full of strength and of character.
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Bertani Valpolicella
A trim version, with grippy tannins and tightly knit flavors of grilled plum, dried rose petal, garrigue and cocoa powder. Shows length and verve on the finish, but will need some time to open up. Best from 2015 through 2025.
Bertani is Amarone’s ultimate ambassador. This is a focused wine and has been carefully consistent over the years. Bertani has always portrayed appassimento — wine made from air-dried grapes—in the most sophisticated and elegant way. This expression shows exotic spice, dried fruit, cola and leather aromas. It could age for 10 years or more.
