Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella 2010 750ml
- Amarone, Veneto
James Suckling – 95 Points (2010)
From one of the classic estates in the Veneto, this Amarone is one of the benchmarks of the region. The grapes are hand harvested and dried on straw mats for approximately four months before they are pressed. Further aged for 6 years in old barrels, the resulting wine is dense, full-bodied with aromas of raisins, chocolate, dried fruit.
Bertani Amarone della Valpolicella 2010 is still very fresh indeed, showcasing sour cherries, red plums, citrus, orange peel and grenadine. Very linear and tangy on the palate, but the muscular tannins provide depth and power. Medium-to full-bodied and medium-chewy on the vibrant finish. Beautifully crafted and expertly shaped. Flag-bearer for the modern style of Amarone. Drink now. – James Suckling
