Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Oct 2009)
Bertani?s 2006 Amarone della Valpolicella Valpantena Villa Arvedi is a dark wine with a promising bouquet that doesn?t seem to find the continuity or complexity on the palate I had hoped for in this vintage. Still, this is a pretty, impeccably balanced fruit-driven Amarone to enjoy over the next few years. Sweet spices, earthiness and dark cherries linger on the elegant close. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014.

Wine maker notes
The best whole, perfectly ripened bunches are hand harvested in early September and carried to farmhouses where they are left to dry on traditional straw mats called "arelle, a process which raisins the grapes and concentrates the natural sugars. After approximately 120 days, the grapes are pressed and slow fermentation begins at a low temperature. Fermentation continues until the sugars have been completely converted to alcohol.

Technical notes
14.5% abv

Food pairing
An outstanding match with roast meat and game, as well as hearty, flavorful cheeses served with figs and nuts
