2022 Valpolicella DOC, Bertani

  • £21.95

From its status as the father of Amarone to the presence of its Soave on the menu for King George VI’s coronation in 1937, the history of Bertani is awash with landmarks. Established at the time of the Risorgimento – the 19th century unification of Italy – it has been a symbol of that new nation’s pride and dynamism ever since.

The manual harvest takes place in the third week of September. Vinification begins with grapes picked from the bunches pressed and put in steel tanks (large and downs, suited to increase contact between skins and must limit mechanical) with a temperature of fermentation between 18-20°C.

Violet red colour. Intense notes of black currant red, plum, raspberry, black cherry and spice. On th epalate the wine opens, fresh with a good balance between acidity, sweetness and tannin. This wine goes perfectly with Italian style appetizers, pasta dishes and rich style dishes.
