Color - Deep garnet red Bouquet - Generous aroma of freshly-picked cherries mingled with notes of sour cherries, vanilla and an agreeable trace of spiciness Taste - Dry, full-bodied and amply structured; cherries, red berries and a hint of vanilla lead into a dazzling finish of walnuts and hazelnuts
Wine Advocate 94 points - This features the leather, loamy earth and spice box notes of a traditional Amarone, with flavors of dried cherry and cranberry fruit, smoke and herb. Well-knit and lightly juicy, though this fades quickly on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,800 cases made.-AN

Wine Enthusiast 93 points - A classy effort, the 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a magnificent wine that showcases the qualities and pretty nuances of the elegant vintage. The bouquet is immensely perfumed with delicate tones of crushed mineral, red rose, dried cherry, creme de cassis, Indian spice and cured meat. It’s a streamlined expression that is still muted at this young stage. Give it more time to complete its evolutionary course. Drink 2015-2028.

The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is flat-out gorgeous. Why can't all the Bertani wines be this good? The 2004 is a superb, elegant Amarone graced with expressive dark red fruit, flowers, tobacco and spices, all supported by finessed, silky tannins. Sweet roses, tar and licorice are woven into the layered, sublime finish. Deceptively medium in body, the 2004 has the stuffing to age well for decades. This is a terrific showing from Bertani. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2034.

93 PTS – Wine Enthusiast
"Aged in traditional oak casks for six long years, Bertani’s beautiful 2004 Amarone delivers the best of Valpolicella. It shows beautiful complexity and elegance that is articulated by tobacco, brown sugar, cassis and sweet tobacco flavors. There’s substance and length on the close with a delicately smoky aftertaste. "

92 PTS – Wine & Spirits
"Noted for its long-lived Amarone, Bertani offers a 2004 that feels less powerful than persistent. It's relatively light in body for an Amarone, holding what might be described as a silent power, recessed in mineral-scented tannins and savory earthbound fruitiness. It's elegant enough to decant for dinner with seared grass-fed beef, and balanced for further aging."

Winemaker’s Notes
Deep garnet red. Generous aroma of freshly-picked cherries mingled with notes of sour cherries, vanilla and an agreeable trace of spiciness. Dry, full-bodied and amply structured; cherries, red berries and a hint of vanilla lead into a dazzling finish that recalls walnuts and hazelnuts .

Wine maker notes
Through the introduction of longer aging techniques, Bertani transformed the traditionally sweet or sparkling red, Recioto della Valpolicella, into the dry, opulent red we know today as Amarone, one of Italy’s most revered red wines. Bertani Amarone is justly celebrated as a standard bearer for its category.

Technical notes
Grape Varieties - 70% Corvina Veronese; 30% Rondinella Carefully selected grape bunches are hand-harvested in Bertani’s best Valpolicella vineyards in Fumane, Marano and the Novare Valley. Unlike most leading Amarone producers, who buy grapes from outside growers, Bertani’s harvest originates entirely in the firm’s own vineyards. With marly-calcareous soil sheltered by surrounding woodland, these vineyards offer the ideal terroir for nurturing the quality of grapes necessary for producing a world-class Amarone. Harvest begins in early October and extends over a two-week period. After harvest, ripe, unblemished grapes from the uppermost portions of each cluster -- those grapes richest in sugar and extracts -- are carefully detached and laid out to dry on cane mats. The mats are stored on raised platforms in airy lofts, sheltered by a roof but otherwise exposed to drying breezes on all sides. By the time they are ready to undergo maceration and fermentation in February, they will have lost up to 60% of their water content. A lengthy maceration period ensues, a factor responsible for Amarone’s tremendous body and structure. After a controlled fermentation, the wine is transferred into oak casks for a period of 5-8 years during which it is racked twice annually prior to bottling. AGING - 5-8 years in Slavonian oak casks, plus one year in bottle prior to release.
