Secco Bertani Original Vintage Edition is an homage to a memory that has entered our collective mythology, signifying sensations, emotions, and ways of thinking from the past that are capable of enriching the present. The history of Secco-Bertani begins with the story of the winery itself, in 1857. In the archives of the Chamber of Commerce of Verona is a copy of an historical document that attests to world-wide distribution, already by 1888, of Bertani Valpolicella Valpantena, ranking it among the best examples of Italian wine. Secco-Bertani created the style of wine in Verona, using the best techniques of the era and the best grapes available. To commemorate and highlight the historical, enological and stylistic importance of this wine, we decided to create a “Vintage Edition”, reviving the original spirit of its tradition for a true innovation that respects the recipe, style and taste of long ago. The antique recipe called for the wine to be produced using 80% of grapes native to the zone, those coming from vineyards on the hills that surround the historical headquarters, with the addition of 20% of other varieties, as in 1889.
