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.


Vineyards are located in the hillsides of the Valpantena Cru, north of Verona. Soils are marl-limestone on the eastern slope of the valley and clay-limestone on the western slope. The training systems are Guyot and Pergola with the vines average age of 15 - 20 years.

Winemaking & Aging

The best grapes are selected so that only the healthiest and ripest bunches are sent to the drying rooms in the historic winery at Grezzana, where they are laid out in single-layer crates. In mid-January, the grapes are destemmed and crushed, then fermentation starts, at first at a temperature of 39°F- 41°F, which then reaches 72°F in the final stages. The wine is aged in 30-, 54- and 75-hectolitre barrels for 24 months followed by 6 months maturation in bottle.

Tasting Notes

A rich wine with dark cherries and berries, a hint of tobacco and herbs. Mineral, spice and perfumed notes evolve over the silky texture and fine tannins. Pairs well with rich dishes, mature cheeses and strong-flavored meats.


Offering an elegant display of aromatics, from ripe blackberries to subtle notes of leather, tobacco, clove and a hint of vanilla. The palate indulges with a velvety texture, harmonized by rich plum flavors, savory herbs and turned earth with a warm, persistent finish that shows the complexity of this wine. —J.P.

Wine Enthusiast - May 2024


An elegant red, with an incense-infused range of plumped cherry, dried raspberry, black tea leaf and orange peel flavors. Fresh and finely meshed, with light, supple tannins and a zesty underpinning of milled pepper and spices that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2029. –A.N.
