Winemaker 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 .

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

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.

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.

Bertani, , Italy
Bertani
Located near Verona in the province of Veneto in northeast Italy, Casa Vinicola Bertani is one of the region's most important and influential wine producers. Bertani produces a full spectrum of the classic wines of the Veneto and has enjoyed a reputation for quality from the start.

Bertani was founded in 1857 by brothers Gaetano and Giovan Battista Bertani. Prosperous wine merchants who believed that quality winemaking held the key to the future, the Bertanis invested their funds in buying some of the finest vineyards in the province and making their own wines. Consequently, unlike most other local producers, Bertani owns its own vineyards and so is able to oversee the entire winemaking cycle from start to finish.

Champagne

View all wine

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, Champagne is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to be labeled ‘Champagne’ within the EU and many New World countries, a wine must originate in this northeastern region of France and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide. Well-drained limestone chalk soil defines much of the region, lending a mineral component to the wines. The climate here is marginal—ample acidity is a requirement for sparkling wine, so overripe grapes are to be avoided. Weather differences from year to year create significant variation between vintages, and in order to maintain a consistent house style, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled varietally, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, delicacy, and elegance, as well as bright and lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit, and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body, and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while one comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’
