The 2003 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is a big, enveloping wine loaded with wild cherries, licorice, new leather and dried flowers, not to mention considerable personality. The tannins are just a touch rough around the edges, and I am not sure they will ever soften given the heat of the vintage, but the 2003 should continue to drink well for at least a handful of years. Ideally the wine is best paired with hearty dishes.

This traditional style delivers base notes of smoke and sweet earth, joined by focused flavors of dried cherry, walnut, date, star anise and a hint of rich treacle. Displays lovely balance, supple tannins and a fresh, herb- and mineral-tinged finish.

While this is an enjoyable wine that is ready to drink today with just 1 hour of decanting, there are equally good, if not better, Amarones for half of the price.

About This Producer


In 1857 the brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani founded the company with the same enthusiasm and forward-looking approach that still inspires Bertani today. Ownership of the vineyards has been a constant feature from generation to generation; Bertani is one of the few companies in the area that owns the vineyards where its grapes are grown. Today Bertani is still owned by members of the family, with a steadily growing European and world-wide distribution network.

The Bertani company owns vineyards and cellars in the Valpantena, on the Villa Novare estate in the Valpolicella, as well as land in the Soave area and in the areas around Lake Garda. The company headquarters is in the original cellars in Grezzana, north-east of Verona, where the historic vineyards are still to be found and where the work of vinification, aging, and bottling take place.
