Masterclass: Taste the elegance of Bertani’s wines at the Decanter Italy Experience 2024

Enhance your February with an unforgettable masterclass with Bertani’s chief of winemaking, Andrea Lonardi MW and Italian wine expert, Michelle Cherutti-Kowal MW.

Celebrate the much-anticipated return of the Decanter Italy Experience with this sensational 75- minute masterclass.

Bertani, founded in 1857, is a symbol of pioneering excellence in Italy’s Valpolicella region, from its ‘cru’ bottlings of Valpolicella Classico Superiore in the Negrar valley, to producing some of the first Amarone wines.

Bertani’s ‘cru’ concept will be a focus of this special tasting, which will include ‘Ognisanti di Novare’, a Valpolicella Classico Superiore from the 2.92-hectare Ognisanti vineyard.

Two delightful, distinctive Ripasso styles will also be poured, and the tasting will conclude with a trio of vintages of Bertani’s long-aged Amarone della Valpolicella Classico, renowned for its combination of finesse, complexity and energy.

Join us on Saturday, 24 February 2024 at The Landmark London Hotel for a rare chance to explore the estate’s elegant, terroir-driven wines in-depth with two leading experts: Bertani’s chief of winemaking and Italy’s newest Master of Wine, Andrea Lonardi, and co-host Michelle Cherutti-Kowal MW, Italian wine specialist and a Decanter World Wine Awards regional chair.
