About this winery

Bertani’s story began mid-19th century when brothers Giovan Battista and Gaetano Bertani purchased some land in Quinto di Valpantena, north of Verona, in 1857.

Notes about product

Sereole is a “cru” in the Soave Classica area, the Monte Tondo, located between the municipalities of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone. The soil is clay-loam with substantial amounts of organic matter that enriches and brings out the typical notes of this grape variety. The Garganega grapes are Pergola-Veronese trained with a planting density of 3000 plants per hectare and vertical trellised with a density of 5000 plants/ha.

Winemaking notes

This wine is cold macerated with gentle crushing of the grape skins.The fermentation began in steel and ended in French oak barrels, where the wine remained on its lees for 4-6 months.

Tasting notes

A straw-yellow colour with golden highlights; the floral bouquet has overtones of elderflower and pear, developing into sweeter aromas of yellow-fleshed fruits such as apricot, pineapple and melon. Plush on the palate, balanced with sapid notes that enhance the structure.
