Buy Bertani Amarone
The wine has a deep, dark garnet colour. The classical cherry flavours of Amarone are immediately perceptible to the nose, with the preponderant notes of Marasca and sour cherry. The wine presents a great variety of characters, from fresh fruit to jamlike tones, which offer a very harmonious aftertaste, alternating with spicy elements. The ample nose has a sweet impact and spreads in a continuous chain of sensations. The wine opens up in the mouth with aftertastes of all the red-berry fruits, besides vanilla on soft, heavy-duty cloth.
Wine Advocate 94 points - 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
GRAPE VARIETIES: Corvina Veronese 70%, Rondinella 25%, Molinara 5%

AREA OF PRODUCTION: Bertani's Novare estate in the Valpolicella Classico area. Valleys sorrounded by the natural breath of woods , the marl-calcareous soil make these vineyards ideal for the production of grapes for the Amarone.

VINIFICATION: A selection of the best, perfectly ripe and healthy bunches was then transported to the loft - extremely airy rooms situated in the wine cellar garret - and laid out on cane mats ("arelle”) for the drying. After about 120 days withering the grapes lost about 33% of their weight , while there was an increase in the sugar degree (24 babo). On January 2nd the grapes were pressed and the must was left to ferment on the skin to increase the degree of extraction of polyphenolic substances. During the slow fermentation part of the residual sugar was transformed into alcohol and glicerine. The latter has the influent task to mellow the exuberance of Amarone which then acquires elegance and softness.
