BACKGROUND

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.
The Velante range by Bertani represents the successful varieties and wine styles from the Venetian area. “Velante” means drape (velo), a design taken from the Romanesque era and Palatine statues.

TERROIR & VINTAGE NOTES

The Pinot Grigio is grown in the Venezia Giulia region, including the provinces of Gorizia, Pordenone, Trieste and Udine.
The alluvial soils consist of a gravel sub-layer covered by reddish clay rich in iron oxide. The vines average 10-15 years and are bilateral Guyot trained.

WINEMAKING

Fermentation in steel containers at a controlled temperature of 58°F–60°F. The wine rests in tank for approximately four months.

TASTING NOTES

Pale lemon color with a green hue. Bright, expressive nose with nectarine, pear, and a touch of sage. The palate is fresh with lively acidity— creamy-textured mid-palate combine with a saline finish.
