Deep garnet red. ------------------------------------------ Delicate, characteristic of mature wine, with scents of spices and nuts. ------------------------------------------ Dry, well balanced with a pleasing hint of bitterness in its lingering finish.

Black cherry color. Notes of dried cranberry, cedar in the straightforward bouquet that pleasingly tart, tight, bittersweet. Taste profile is peppery, spicy, tart, ripe, berry-laden. Aftertaste is long, mildly tannic, and features a lingering tobacco-like quality that’s toasty.
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2013)
The 2011 Ripasso Valpolicella Valpantena Secco Bertani is loaded tight with pressed fruit, prune, spice, tar, leather and dark licorice. A second fermentation occurs on the pomace of Amarone and Recioto that add an extra touch of sweetness to this wine. The texture is velvety and rich. Integrated acidity makes this a great choice to pair with rosemary-scented lamb or other succulent meat dishes. Drink 2014-2018.

Wine maker notes
The wine undergoes 11-days of maceration in vats at a controlled temperature and with programmed remontage. In March, it is re-fermented over Recioto Amarone skins, following the traditional Veronese technique called Ripasso. The wine is aged 75% in large Slavonian oak casks and 25% in French oak barriques for approximately 18 months. It is then refined in bottle for a minimum of 90 days.
