Tasting notes
Color - Deep garnet red Bouquet - Generous aromaof freshly-picked cherries mingled with notes of sour cherries, vanilla and an agreeable trace of spiciness Taste - Dry, full-bodied and amply structured; cherries, red berries and a hint of vanilla lead into a dazzling finish of walnuts and hazelnuts

This features the leather, loamy earth and spice box notes of a traditional Amarone, with flavors of dried cherry and cranberry fruit, smoke and herb. Well-knit and lightly juicy, though this fades quickly on the finish. Drink now through 2018. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 8,800 cases made.-AN
A classy effort, the 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a magnificent wine that showcases the qualities and pretty nuances of the elegant vintage. The bouquet is immensely perfumed with delicate tones of crushed mineral, red rose, dried cherry, creme de cassis, Indian spice and cured meat. It’s a streamlined expression that is still muted at this young stage. Give it more time to complete its evolutionary course. Drink 2015-2028.

Wine maker notes
The notes of dried fruit and plum are overpowered by an extremely rich bouquet. Intense aroma of berries, fruit compote, licorice, chocolate and tea leaves underline the complexity and freshness of this vintage. Dark red with ruby nuances.

Technical notes
Grape Varieties - 70% Corvina Veronese; 30% Rondinella Carefully selected grape bunches are hand-harvested in Bertani’s best Valpolicella vineyards in Fumane, Marano and the Novare Valley. Unlike most leading Amarone producers, who buy grapes from outside growers, Bertani’s harvest originates entirely in the firm’s own vineyards. With marly-calcareous soil sheltered by surrounding woodland, these vineyards offer the ideal terroir for nurturing the quality of grapes necessary for producing a world-class Amarone. Harvest begins in early October and extends over a two-week period. After harvest, ripe, unblemished grapes from the uppermost portions of each cluster -- those grapes richest in sugar and extracts -- are carefully detached and laid out to dry on cane mats. The mats are stored on raised platforms in airy lofts, sheltered by a roof but otherwise exposed to drying breezes on all sides. By the time they are ready to undergo maceration and fermentation in February, they will have lost up to 60% of their water content. A lengthy maceration period ensues, a factor responsible for Amarone’s tremendous body and structure. After a controlled fermentation, the wine is transferred into oak casks for a period of 5-8 years during which it is racked twice annually prior to bottling. AGING - 5-8 years in Slavonian oak casks, plus one year in bottle prior to release.
