This wine has an intense and approachable fruity expression, freshened by notes of medicinal herbs and dried flowers. The palate is seemingly never-ending and full, both savory and succulent. Soft tannins, chewy on long finish, great balance with acidity, this has a very nice mouthfeel that ends on an oaky character note. It pairs well with red meat, game, mature cheeses, but it is also perfect as a meditation wine at the end of a meal.

A really beautiful Amarone that shows fresh, glazed cherries, red licorice, dried nutmeg, caramelized orange peel, dried rose petals, hot stones and red-plum essence. Medium to full body, really tight and compact tannins, pinpoint acidity and a long, spicy finish. So dry, linear and well defined. Drink now or hold.

Bottled in January 2017 and released to the market during the upcoming April edition of Vinitaly, 2009 was a warm, dry vintage just as in Bordeaux, yet favored here by a drastic range of diurnal and nocturnal temperatures. The wine is full of youth apparent by the color and almost estery on the nose, with a bright cherry aroma accentuated by notes of bay leaf and a peppery finish. The acidity is still quite racy undermining firm, ripe tannins while balancing high alcohol (15,5%). Bottle ageing will help to give way to the beloved, restrained Bertani style.

This opens with quintessential Amarone aromas of baked plum, dark spice, underbrush, leather and pipe tobacco. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, prune, toasted hazelnut, star anise and clove set against fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2024.

An elegant red, medium- to full-bodied and mineral-driven, offering hints of tar-tinged smoke and cured tobacco as a savory foil for the wild cherry and singed orange-peel flavors. Fresh and well-knit, with fine-grained tannins emerging on the lightly spiced finish. Drink now through 2029. 6,500 cases made, 3,600 cases imported.
