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.
Described by Italians as a 'vino da meditazione', this is the perfect companion for late night ponderings in an easy chair, either on one's own or with a very quiet friend. In terms of food matching, the fact that the Bertani style is drier than many modern show-winning competitors means that it is very food friendly and will pair anything from ham to steak.

The history of Bertani is inextricably linked with the development of Amarone as we know it today. The house of Bertani has produced quality wines in the Valpolicella region since the late 1800s, and was instrumental in the production of the earliest dry Amarone in 1958.
Today they produce a number of classic examples of Valpolicella and Amarone, as well as some exciting and innovative wines such as 'Due Uve' and Bertarose. Their Secco Bertani Valpolicella Classico is one of the finest examples in the region, as well as featuring one of the most stylish labels anywhere!
Bertani also nurture one of the largest libraries of amazing old vintages in the region, some of which can be made available on request. Bertani's Amarone Classico 2003 was awarded the coveted Tre Bicchieri (three glasses) in 2011.
