Bertani Secco Valpolcella Valpetena

Region Quinto, Grezzana, Santa Maria in Stelle, Italy
Grape Rondinella and Corvina Corvina
Style Red
Brand Bertani

General information:
The first wine ever produced by the company, Secco-Bertani originated around 1870 on the hills of Valpantena. It was the first example of a great quality wine from the Verona area, and today it is still a timeless classic, a milestone in the history of wine-making, a true point of reference by which standards are set. It is the result of a successful innovation, namely the technique of refermenting Valpolicella on the skins and lies of Recioto (with the recent addition of Amarone), which provides a balance between the fresh fruity quality and the spicy notes typical of Valpantena and the concentration and structure which are the result of the particular vinification process used.

Soil: A marl calcareous soil prevails in the eastern side, while in the western side the soil is argillaceous-calcareous, rich in iron.

Variety: Rondinella and Corvina Corvina

Origin: Quinto, Grezzana, Santa Maria in Stelle, Italy

Aging:It ages in medium and big Slavonian oak cask and medium and big cherry wood casks for about 18 months.

Tasting notes:
Colour: Very deep garnet red colour with purple nuances.

Aroma: At the nose scent of ripe cherry, evolving in black cherry notes, spices and dried fruit: the authentic Valpantena tones.

Palate:In the mouth it shows an incredible balance of soft tannins and a goog acidity, with a long, sapid and persistent taste.

Thanks to its unique character and the worldwide prestige which it gave to Italian wine production, in the
early years of the twentieth century it was rewarded with the Royal Warrant of the Italian Royal Family. It is a wine that is both drinkable and complex, and therefore goes so well
with food that it is suited to accompany a large variety of dishes, enhancing the convivial pleasure of the dinner table.
