Winemaker's Notes

Secco-Bertani has been in continuous production for over 150 years and is rightly extolled as the "grandfather" of ripasso-technique Veronese wines. With the classic ripasso process, grape must is left to rest for a few days in spring on freshly drawn lees from Bertani's Recioto Amarone wine. Launched in the late 1850s, Secco-Bertani was in all likelihood the first ripasso Valpolicella to earn a substantial following outside its native Italy.

Bertani is headquartered at the palatial neo-classical Villa Novare north of Verona in Italy's Veneto region. One of northeast Italy's most prestigious wine producers, Bertani owns all its own vineyards from which it produces an array of estate-grown wines. Founded in 1857, this family-owned estate has enjoyed a reputation for quality from the start. Bertani Amarone is justly celebrated as a standard bearer for its category.

Grape Varieties
Corvina Veronese 70%; Rondinella 25%; Molinara 5%

Bouquet
Delicate, characteristic of mature wine, with scents of spices and nuts.

Taste
Dry, well balanced with a pleasing hint of bitterness in its lingering finish.
