wine, supple and fruity. It is produced by the technique of refermenting Valpolicella on the skins of Amarone and Recioto, to which Bertani adds a small quantity of semi-dried grapes to make the wine’s fruity notes more intense and to give it added suppleness and freshness. This is a new interpretation of a traditional technique born of Bertani’s skill and culture.
