Tenuta Santa Maria Valpolicella Classico Superiore 150cl 2019

14% abv

Vol- 150cl

Delightful traditional style offering blueberry, hints of cherry, autumn fruits and lingering accents of cinnamon and pepper spice. Grippy, soft and warm defined tannins are balanced with classy lift, a long finish and fruity sensations.

Corvina 75%, Rondinella 10%, Corvinone 15% from low-yielding vineyards harvested later than the grapes destined for Amarone. Cllusters are hand-selected at the Arbizzano di Negrar estate, in the heart of the Valpolicella Classica zone. The grapes are crushed, cold-pressed and left to ferment for 25-30 days at a controlled temperature with daily punch downs. When fermentation is complete, the wine is transferred to oak barrels where malolactic fermentation takes place. Aged for 14 months of aging in traditional large casks.

Tenuta Santa Maria is a private estate of the Bertani family. Located in the Arbizzano frazione of Negrar, one of the most highly regarded terroirs of the Valpolicella Classica, the 16th century Villa Mosconi Bertani and its vineyards are intertwined with the history of the regions' most famous wine - Amarone. The great grandfather of today's proprietor, Gaetano Bertani, along with his brother Giovan Battista, founded the estate in 1857. The family was responsbile for the introduction of the term 'Amarone', coined in 1936 within the very cellars of the villa complex in reference to a wine the Bertani family had been producing since the early 1900s under the name 'Recioto Secco'.

The estate, along with the Colognola ai Colli property in the Val d'illasi to the east, were retained post 2013 when the Gruppo Bertani was sold. Today Gaetano, along with his sons Giovanni & Guglielmo, work to express the quality of this land by combining traditional methods, selected technology, and experience passed down through generations of family tradition. The vineyards are in organic conversion.
