Le Quaiare Lugana

Bertani’s impact on Veneto wine making, particularly in Amarone production, is so considerable that ‘Bertani’ and ‘Amarone’ are nearly synonymous. Their 150+ year history is dotted with groundbreaking initiatives and royal accreditation. While respectful of their past, Bertani strives towards innovation, using progressive techniques and equipment allied with extensive experience and a deeply felt respect for tradition to provide wines of uncompromising quality.TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES
The grapes come from the gentle slopes that sweep down to Lake Garda, with calcareous clay soils.
The vines are vertical-trellised with a planting density of 5000 vines/ha. The harvest is done in mid-September.WINEMAKING
The grapes are gently crushed and fermentation takes place in steel tanks at a temperature of 58-60°F.AGING
The wine is aged in steel containers on the lees for at least three months, with periodic stirring of the settled lees.TASTING NOTES
A straw-yellow colour with greenish highlights. On the nose fruity overtones of pear, peach and apricot and floral notes. Good follow-through on the palate, with good balance between tanginess and acidity. It is a clear and crystalline wine that goes well with light and delicate fish dishes.
