Bertani Secco-Bertani Original Vintage Edition 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Just a bit of Corvinone and other varieties, merlot, osceleta, Sangiovese, first part of fermentation in SS, then once it slows down it finishes in botte cherry and chestnut, instead of finishing in eight days the fermentation lingers for thirty even forty days, the long slow fermentation allows the wine to gain sweetness, not jamminess but gentleness, aged in botte for about a year Rose petals and cinnamon greet the nose with some mace and sweet gum aromas laid over soft cherry and smoky, balsamic strawberry fruit with hints of cherry wood spice. Soft on entry, though broad with a fine tissue like texture in the mouth. This delicately covers the palate, with subtly oozing cherry fruit and wild raspberry flavors that carry little stony tannins with them. Quite detailed in the mouth, this finishes cleanly with great length, slightly austere tannins, and lovely aromatic fruit, that shows more rose petal and a subtle edge of dried orange peel on the finish. This is very sexy in a subtle and refined way, with real persistence to the fruit. 90pts
