PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Bertani was founded in 1857 by brothers Gaetano and Giovan Battista Bertani. Prosperous wine merchants who believed quality winemaking held the key to the future, the Bertanis invested in some of the finest vineyards in the province. They spearheaded a campaign to underscore the potential of Verona's Valpantena Valpolicella wine district. The release of its Secco-Bertani Valpantena brand, still in production 150+ years later, is responsible for putting this DOC on the map. Bertani is also one of the first producers in the region to craft Amarones. Today, under the guidance of Director of Operations Andrea Lonardi, Bertani makes top-notch wines from its 200+ hectares of vineyards in the Veneto.*

The 2017 Bertano Valpolicella Ripasso is a blend of 85% Corvina Veronese, 10% Merlot, and 5% Rondinella sourced from the hills of the Valpantena and Valpolicella areas. The soil is mainly calcareous-marl, part of which is volcanic and rich in iron. The first fermentation takes place in special wide and shallow steel tanks that are ideal for increasing contact between must and skins at a temperature of 68 to 72°F, lasting for about two weeks. The second Ripasso fermentation takes place in March. The wine is then aged in French oak for 9 months.*

Full-bodied and packed with ripe fruit characters, today’s wine has aromas of brambly blackcurrants and black cherries that follow through on the velvet-textured palate. Firm yet pliant tannins, subtle undertones of herbs, wet stone, and vanilla with moderate yet balancing acidity make this wine compellingly complex and incredibly tasty with or without food.
