The first wine produced by the company, Secco-Bertani was born around 1870 on the hills of Valpantena. The first interpretation of a great quality wine in the Veronese area, even today Secco-Bertani is a timeless classic and milestone of enology, a true reference model. The result of a successful innovation, the re-fermentation of Valpolicella on the pomace of Recioto and today also of Amarone, combines the freshness of the fruit and the spicy notes typical of Valpantena with a concentration and structure deriving from the particular vinification. Its uniqueness and the prestige that led to Italian enology in the world, earned it the authoritative patent of the Royal House at the beginning of the 20th century. Combining drinkability and complexity, this wine integrates so well with food that it can be paired with different dishes, enhancing the value of conviviality.
