Couldn't pass this up. $75 on a wine list at an Olive Garden outside Tucson AZ! Don't ask what we were doing at an Olive Garden, haha!

An excellent year. But still can be stored for another 20 or more.

A good vintage for the whole region, best displayed in a glass, unlike Mazzi. The bouquet clearly indicates that this wine could have become Recioto someday 😄. Compared to other samples, the aroma is more fruity. There is no spice in taste, but in this case such circumstances cannot be considered a disadvantage. Long time in oakis felt but not dominant due to the traditional approach to Amarone production. There are some cherry, chocolate, oak, brown sugar, black licorice.

Most wineries can’t afford to cellar wines for decades like Bertani does. More than 120k btls are sitting in their historical winery in Gezzana. These are real wine treasures. If you find the 2000, grab it now. It’s truly a pleasure and joy to drink. And it probably has another 10 or more years ahead of it. Bertani wines stand the test of time also because they are bottled with less than 5 grams residual sugar, whereas many Amarone producers now bottle with 14-20 grams and are bottling at 16-18% abv
