Grape Varieties: 80% Corvina Veronese and 20% Rondinella.
Jancis Robinson: 16.5/20

Tasting Notes: The colour is intense ruby red. The nose offers great aromatic richness with fruity notes of cherry and blackberry. Spicy tones of cinnamon and pepper. Mouth-filling on the palate, soft and creamy, with a persistent, intense finish. Dense, meaty tannins.

Food Pairing: It is a full-bodied wine that needs rich dishes, mature cheeses and strong-flavoured meats.

This wine comes from the hills of the Valpantena, the only “cru” subzone in the Valpolicella area. Bertani’s traditional devotion to producing Amarone is also found in this wine, a modern and balanced Amarone, but still authentic and rich in body. New fermentation technology and drying methods give balance and elegance to the wine’s exuberant fruity notes, blackberry flavour, hints of mint, sweet cherry and spicy notes that are typical of this valley.

The Grape
Corvina, Corvinone blend
Corvina is widely grown on the Veneto shore of Lake Garda and the hills of Valpolicella to the north and north-east of Verona. Sometimes known as Corvina Veronese, it is blended with Rondinella and Molinara to produce Valpolicella and Bardolino. It can be a tricky grape to cultivate, as it ripens late and is prone to rot if affected by rains at harvest time. It is a high-yielding grape and quality is very dependent on keeping yields low.

Corvina-based red wines can range in style from a light, cherryish red to the rich, port-like Recioto and Amarone Valpolicella. Most Valpolicella from the plains is pale and insipid, and bears little comparison with Valpolicella Classico from the hills. Some producers such as Allegrini are now producing very high quality 100% Corvina wines.
