Secco Bertani, Vintage Edition, 2014

23.49

The star of the show at a recent tasting of the wines of Italy's north east, this is a classic and stylishly bottled gem of a red. Full bodied, bone dry, with bitter sweet cherries and licorice on the palate, a unique freshness and phenomenal length on the finish

A true Valpolicella Ripasso, this is totally unique and deserving of a place amongst the world's most individual and classic red wines. Ripasso denotes a term, originally registered by Masi for their exclusive use (hence the absence of the term on this label) and involves the passing of high quality Valpolicella normale over partially or lightly raisined grapes normally used for Amarone or Recioto in the manner of governo all'uso toscano giving what can only be described as a semi Amarone

Bertani, established in 1857 have all the hallmarks of an azienda leader for Valpolicella with a museum collection of Amarone/Recioto (hidden from the invading German army) dating from the 1920's.
