6 generations of Bertani have been making wines in the Valpolicella region, the family enterprise continues with Tenuta Santa Maria. The 2015 is a wonderfully approachable wine noted by Vinous, “Sweet violets and roses give way to black cherries, balsamic spices and white smoke as the incredibly pretty 2015 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico Riserva blossoms in the glass. This is an undeniably elegant and refined style, casting a polished display of licorice-tinged blackberries and savory herbs across a core of brisk acidity. The resulting expression is quite savory, tapering off long with building tannic tension that grows with each sip. Rich notes of mocha contrast fresh mint and salty minerals, as this finishes impossibly long with an umami feel. The 2015 gets an official "wow" in my book.”
Giovanni and Guglielmo Bertani blend passion and skill with the power of the past. Pick up this historical powerhouse for perfect pairing with steak or venison.
