A deep garnet red colour witnesses the long barrel ageing. The first impression on the nose is of fresh black cherry aromas, leading into notes of maraschino cherry and plum. Immense depth and complexity on the palate: dried fruit, oolong tea, liquorice, spice, red-berry fruits, and a long velvety vanilla note on the finish. However, the key to this wine has got to be the sweetness level. It is genuinely dry, unlike many modern-style competitors.

Winemaking

The harvest is done by hand in the second week of September. After careful bunch selection, the grapes are taken to the drying rooms and laid in a single layer on bamboo racks. They remain here for about 120 days to gain better concentration, favouring the development of a rich aromatic profile. In mid-January the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Maceration at 4-5°C for about 20 days, then a slow fermentation starts – about 30 days in concrete vats at a maximum temperature of 18°C. Ageing: Amarone Classico Bertani ages in Slavonian oak barrels, with an average capacity of 60 hl, for about six years. Then it matures in the bottle for at least 12 months.
