BERTANI AMARONE DELLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO 2008
Country: Italy, Veneto, Valpolicella
Grape Varieties: 80% Corvina Veronese and 20% Rondinella. 
AWARDS
Wine Enthusiast: 93/100


Tasting Notes: An intense red colour, with garnet nuances. Firstly there are the typical notes of plum, cherry and morello cherry on the nose, followed by a great variety of tones: nuts, tea leaves, liquorice and spices. On the palate there are hints of red berry fruits, softened by plush vanilla notes, in perfect harmony with the acidity and tannins.

Food Pairing: It can be drunk with red meat, game, mature cheeses, but it is also perfect as a meditation wine at the end of a meal.

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.
