"Aged in traditional oak casks for six long years, Bertaniís beautiful 2004 Amarone delivers the best of Valpolicella. It shows beautiful complexity and elegance that is articulated by tobacco, brown sugar, cassis and sweet tobacco flavors. Thereís substance and length on the close with a delicately smoky aftertaste."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 91
"The 2004 Amarone della Valpolicella Classico is flat-out gorgeous... The 2004 is a superb, elegant Amarone graced with expressive dark red fruit, flowers, tobacco and spices, all supported by finessed, silky tannins. Sweet roses, tar and licorice are woven into the layered, sublime finish..."
