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, losing up to 60% of their water content. In mid-January the grapes are destemmed and crushed. Maceration at 4-5 for about 20 days, then a slow fermentation starts about 30 days in concrete vats at a maximum temperature of 18.

"A really beautiful Amarone that shows fresh, glazed cherries, red licorice, dried nutmeg, caramelized orange peel, dried rose petals, hot stones and red-plum essence. Medium to full body, really tight and compact tannins, pinpoint acidity and a long, spicy finish. So dry, linear and well defined. Drink now or hold."

"Bottled in January 2017 and released to the market during the upcoming April edition of Vinitaly, 2009 was a warm, dry vintage just as in Bordeaux, yet favored here by a drastic range of diurnal and nocturnal temperatures. The wine is full of youth apparent by the color and almost estery on the nose, with a bright cherry aroma accentuated by notes of bay leaf and a peppery finish. The acidity is still quite racy undermining firm, ripe tannins while balancing high alcohol (15,5%). Bottle ageing will help to give way to the beloved, restrained Bertani style. Drinking Window 2020 - 2040"

"This opens with quintessential Amarone aromas of baked plum, dark spice, underbrush, leather and pipe tobacco. The full-bodied palate offers dried cherry, prune, toasted hazelnut, star anise and clove set against fine-grained tannins. Drink through 2024."

Wine Spectator
"A subtle red, with a hint of smoky mineral underscoring the dried cherry, cocoa powder and dried thyme notes. Fresh and elegant, framed by fine tannins and offering a lingering, silky finish. Drink now through 2025."
