Bertani Bertarose

Bertani Bertarose

Bertarose, a historic Bertani wine produced since as long ago as the 1930s, has now been given a more up-to-date style in order to bring out the best of the particular characteristics of the Molinara grape, which is vinified without appassimento. Bertarose reflects the optimum microclimatic conditions of the hills above Lake Garda enjoyed by the Molinara and Merlot vineyards. Special care is taken in the vineyards to enhance the quality of the Molinara, a grape variety traditionally used in the Valpolicella to produce Amarone. The innovative red vinification of the Molinara grapes combines with the traditional rose fermentation of the Merlot to give the wine its fresh and harmonious character. Perfect as an aperitif, it also goes well with salads, subtle flavoured pasta dishes and white meat.

Vineyards

The Molinara (25%) is vertical-trellised and Guyot-pruned, with a planting density of 5000 vines/ha. The Merlot (75%) is trained using the spurred cordon system, with 5000 vines/ha.

Vinification

The harvest is done at the end of September. The two varieties are vinified separately, using an innovative techniques.; on-the-skins fermentation for the Molinara and off-theskins fermentation for the Merlot. Once fermentation is finished, the two wines are blended and then aged in stainless steel tanks for about three months on the lees at the end of fermentation.

Tasting notes

A lychee-pink colour. Fresh aromas of pomegranate and redcurrants with notes of white flowers. Decisive on the palate, good body and good balance between acidity and tanginess. Excellent length.

Perfect as an aperitif, it also goes well with salads, delicate-flavoured pasta dishes and white meat.
