Bertani’s impact on Veneto wine making, particularly in Amarone production, is so considerable that ‘Bertani’ and ‘Amarone’ are nearly synonymous. Their 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. While respectful of their past, Bertani strives towards innovation, using progressive techniques and equipment allied with extensive experience and a deeply felt respect for tradition to provide wines of uncompromising quality.
The Secco-Bertani “Vintage Edition” pays homage to a memory that has become a collective myth, evoking sensations, emotions and ways of thinking about the past that can enrich the present. The project foresees the reproduction of a Secco-Bertani wine according to the recipe, style and taste of old, returning to the original packaging of the 1930s.
An intense red color with ruby highlights. Hints of redcurrants, blackberries and cocoa powder on the nose, together with spicy notes of black pepper, cloves and nutmeg. On the palate a pleasant flavor of red fruit, sour cherries, concentrated cherry and black tea, followed by fine, powdery tannins with a coffee bean finish. It is a plush wine with good weight and the typical complexity of mature vineyards, though still young and vibrant. Combining drinkability with complexity, this wine goes so well with food that it can be paired with several dishes to bring out its convivial value.
