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.

Review:
Unfortunately this was well past its prime (vinegar). I have read elsewhere that this vintage was excellent even today, so I am afraid it probably was not stored correctly at some point in the last 50 years. Ended up pouring it down the drain. I guess it truly is a crap shoot buying a 50 year old bottle of wine. On the plus side, the day was not a total loss...she still said yes!

Review:
I would give this 3.5 now. ShopRiteWines was kind enough to ship my another bottle to try as the first one was so disappointing. We finally had a day yesterday where we both could kick back and open this wine. Upon opening, the wine finishes rather harsh, fairly acidic. We actually purposefully enjoyed this second bottle over the course of about twelve hours and it got better the longer it breathed. At the end, it was quite good and smooth. I think the key is to let it come to a stasis after a rather extended period of time. We bought a 2001 Bertani Amarone to taste side by side and the 2001 was not as harsh upon opening and did not last as long as the 1964 :). I would recommend ShopRiteWines.com to anyone, they stand behind their products.

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.
