    For me Bertani is the quintessential Amarone producer, long barrel aging before release allows the wine to be ready to drink upon release but belie the aging ability. Bertani Amarone ages extraordinarily well,in fact you should check out the 1980 Bertani Amarone to get an idea of what old Amarone tastes like! This wine has incredible depth of flavor, spice, intrigue without the "raisiny" character some Amarone get, yet it is that Amarone richness that separates this wine from a "regular" red wine, not fat yet a depth of opulence that allows the wine to engulf your palate with flavor and texture. If you have had Amarone but haven't had Bertani Amarone you owe it to yourself to try this, expecially at this price!

    When I saw that Greg had opened this wine for our Saturday tasting, I could hardly wait to get into the bar to taste it. This is one of the legendary producer of Amarone, and I have never been let down by their top notch wines. The 2004 Bertani Amarone lived up to my lofty expectations and was certainly the best wine of a very good line up. The wine has dried beef and herbs on its subtle raisiny nose, and a rich full body. It is extraordinarily flavorful without being over bearing, or as many Amarone's can be, to strong on dried fruit. It is meaty and high toned and would make an excellent partner for venison or other game. The best feature of the wine is the finish which shows of the delicate dried rose petal side of this massive, complex wine.
