Production areas
Valpantena hills north of the city of Verona. The soils are marno-limestone in the east and clay-limestone in the west, rich in iron.

Winemaking
The harvest takes place from mid-September with manual harvest. Through a careful selection of the best grapes, only healthy and perfectly ripe bunches come
intended for drying in the fruit rooms of the Grezzana winery, in single-layer boxes. In mid-January, with the destemming and pressing of the grapes, fermentation begins, initially at the
temperature of 4 ° - 5 ° C which reaches 22 ° C in the final phase.

The Aging
A part ages in Slavonian oak barrels, with an average capacity of 25 hl and a small part in barriques for about 30 months. Bottling follows a period of aging of at least six months.

VALPANTENA
The Bertani brothers, originally from Quinto di Valpantena, chose to stay in this valley to start winemaking in the mid-nineteenth century, the first specialized viticulture in the landscape
Veronese. Here they experimented with innovative cultivation methods that still favor quality today. The company is still located here in Grezzana, in the historic cellar.
Valpantena - north-east of Verona - is a pre-Alpine valley three kilometers wide and twelve long, which occupies the central part of the Lessini Mountains. It is a superb expanse of
marno-limestone soils,
containing large quantities of iron. Characteristics, these, which allow those spicy and mineral notes of the fruits that are produced and which distinguish its grapes
from those of the others
valleys of Valpolicella. The climate of Valpantena has significant temperature fluctuations, with considerable variability between day and night. These join the optimal
and prolonged exposure
daily of the valley in the sun, with the result of a very high quality of the fruit produced. For the particular characteristics that are found in the grapes and then in the
wine, Valpantena is recognized
officially, within the Valpolicella Controlled Designation of Origin, the status of a real "cru", unique among the seven valleys that make up the wine Valpolicella.
From the grapes
grown in Bertani vineyards (Corvina mainly, Rondinella but also Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon) we still produce the best known wines, such as Secco Bertani, Amarone
della
Valpantena and the Recioto.

Bertani

The Bertani winery was founded in 1857 by the brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani, in Quinto di Valpantena, north of Verona. Gaetano was already then an expert in the art of making wines, having learned the new techniques in France from Professor Guyot, still considered one of the greatest viticulture experts today. The beginning of the Bertani's business coincides with the innovative spirit that pushes to use the most advanced production techniques, both in the wine and wine field, applied to all the properties of that time, in Valpantena and Soave, always respecting the territory and culture of the area's crops. High professionalism and quality, commercial initiative and innovative spirit, were the traits that immediately distinguished the two brothers in the Veronese panorama. Bertani was among the first companies in Italy to understand the value of bottled wine; great investments were made immediately in the vineyards and in the cellar, to bottle and export Italian quality to the world with Bertani wines, which already before the end of the nineteenth century crossed the Atlantic Ocean to be appreciated in many cities in the United States. Bertani was born with the unification of Italy, with the desire and pride to represent the excellence of a new nation with a millenary culture. This commitment and the quality of its wines earned Bertani, in 1923, the distinctive symbol of achieving excellence: the patent of the real house. Although, now that Italy is a republic, it is a fallen symbol, for us it still represents the achievement of the highest quality. The constant commitment in viticulture and enology pushed the Academy of Agriculture, Arts and Commerce of Verona to signal Bertani, in 1870, as a model farm, thanks to its professionalism, the introduction of specialized vineyards, new breeding systems, which immediately connoted the entrepreneurial spirit of the family. Not only that: the quality of Bertani wines knew since then for its refinement, so much so as to see the Soave present on the menu for the coronation of George VI of England in 1937. In the mid-twentieth century, with the acquisition of Tenuta Novare, in Valpolicella Classica, Bertani completed his half-century-long research to produce the "Wine", the one that was born to last forever. It is here, in fact, that the history of Amarone begins, a wine symbol of the territory from which it was born, whose first vintage dates back to 1958. Bertani today With more than 200 hectares of vineyards in the most suitable areas of Veronese, Bertani is today a solid company with a constant increase in distribution in Europe and worldwide. There are two historic cellars, that of Grezzana, the current headquarters and the beating heart of the company where the winemaking, bottling and shipping activities take place, and Tenuta Novare in Arbizzano di Negrar, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica, cradle of great reds like 'Amarone and Valpolicella Classico Superiore. An icon of Italian wine in the world, Bertani combines the typicality of indigenous vines with the continuous updating of production plants and attention focused on the terroir. Respect for tradition balanced by a particular innovative charge, great entrepreneurial capacity at the service of the highest quality are, in short, the inspiring principles of the company, today also a reference point for a great national wine project called Bertani Domains.
