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. Arguably the most significant of those landmarks came in the 1950s, nearly a century after brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani founded the business at Quinto di Valpantena, north of Verona.

The acquisition of the stunning Villa Novare in Valpolicella, along with its 220-hectare estate, led directly to the release, in 1958, of the first dry Amarone. A classic range of benchmark Valpolicella, Ripasso, Amarone and Recioto, innovative modern styles such as BertaRosé and Due Uve, and an extensive library of old vintages: this family-owned winery continues to set standards for the entire region.

Other wines by this producer

  1. 1972 Amarone Classico DOC, Bertani

    A deep garnet red colour witnesses the long barrel ageing. The first impression on the nose is of fresh black cherry aromas, leading into notes of maraschino cherry and plum. Immense depth and complexity on the palate: dried fruit, oolong tea, liquorice, spice, red-berry fruits, and a long velvety vanilla note on the finish. However, the key to this wine has got to be the sweetness level. It is genuinely dry, unlike many modern-style competitors.
