Cristian Ridolfi, Bertani’s winemaker, embarked on a journey to re-create the Secco as it was when it was first made :using the old blend, clones, winemaking methods, equipment that was used back then – a truly unique project. He referred to a document, in the Verona’s library, which described how Secco-Bertani was made back in 1888, written by the Commission of Agriculture and Industry of the time. Quickly was very interested in how the wine had such unique and distinctive characteristics: - no Ripasso technique was used; - different blend of grape varieties were used; - different aging vessels were used; - only Cherry and chestnut (rare to find today).
Wine maker notes
A very long cold maceration on the skins before the original natural Bertani yeasts begin to ferment the wine. The wine is then drained off while still a little sweet and then goes through a further long, slow fermentation process partially in wood.

Producer
Located in the Asti region, Bersano is currently the largest privately held winery in Piedmont with 10 estates and over 230 hectares under vine in the best areas of Monferrato and Langhe. The winery was founded in 1907 by Guisseppe Bersano, and brought to prominence by his nephew Arturo in the 1950’s and 1960’s. In 1985, the Massimelli and Soave families purchased Bersano and immediately returned focus to the vineyards and restoring the quality of the wines which had languished under corporate ownership in the 70’s and 80’s. The result is bright, fresh, approachable classic wines in the traditional style produced under the steady hand of acclaimed winemaker Roberto Morosinotto.
