Bertani, which just recently celebrated its 150th anniversary, was founded in 1857 by brothers Gaetano and Giovan Battista Bertani. Prosperous wine merchants who believed that quality winemaking held the key to the future, the Bertanis invested their funds in buying some of the finest vineyards in the province and making their own wines. Consequently, unlike many other local producers, Bertani owns its own vineyards and so is able to oversee the entire winemaking cycle from start to finish and their wines are considered some of the absolute best in the region. This 1980 vintage shows the extraordinary ability for this wine to age and improve over many years. This is a rare and exquisite wine with velvety softness and complex layers of flavor. Very Limited!
