Bertani Amarone 2010, 2011, 2012 Vertical 3-Pack


Bertani’s impact on Veneto winemaking and Amarone in particular, is absolutely insane. These days, if you just say the name ‘Bertani’, everybody knows you’re talking about Amarone. The two have become that synonymous. Their profound 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. The quality has never wavered. It’s one of those classic, noteworthy bottlings that never disappoints.

This is a super rare opportunity to try a vertical of this Big Red producer from three of the all-time great back-to-back-to-back vintages in Italian wine history. Each sampler includes 1 bottle of the following:

2010 Bertani Amarone (95 pts, JS)
2011 Bertani Amarone (97 pts, JS)
2012 Bertani Amarone (98 pts, JS)

2010 Vintage:
For a 2010, this is still very fresh indeed, showcasing sour cherries, red plums, citrus, orange peel and grenadine. Very linear and tangy on the palate, but the muscular tannins provide depth and power. Medium-to full-bodied and medium-chewy on the vibrant finish. Beautifully crafted and expertly shaped. Flag-bearer for the modern style of Amarone. Drink now. 95 Points, James Suckling

2011 Vintage:
Density and dryness that really comes together here, after almost 10 years in bottle. It’s very deep and vertical on the palate. Very pure and beautiful crushed cherries, dried flowers, carbon and pumice. Wonderful all round. Drink or hold. 97 Points, James Suckling

2012 Vintage:
Wow. Such a complex nose, with a base of dried cherry, spruced up with hints of mild coffee and walnuts. Then there are dried flowers, wild herbs and spices, such as tarragon and cloves. Subtle hints of dried banana and apricot, too. The palate is full, super sleek, intense and well-balanced, with tight, spice-coated tannins that drive everything forward. Long, long finish. Lovely to taste now, but this already almost ten-year-old will sit comfortably in your cellar for a long while yet. 98 Points, James Suckling
