Sartori Reius Amarone della Valpolicella Classico DOCG is a remarkable wine that is the result of a combination of traditional methods and modern technology. This deep red wine is a blend of Corvina, Rondinella, and Molinara grapes that are hand-picked and left to dry for three to four months on special racks in the drying room. This process concentrates the sugars and flavors, resulting in a rich and bold wine with a concentrated aroma of dried fruit, chocolate, and sweet spices. Upon tasting, the wine reveals an intense, velvety taste with well-structured tannins and a long finish. This wine is best served with savory dishes or mature cheeses and should be enjoyed in the company of good friends and conversation.
Intense red in colour with shades of garnet; alluring aromas of red fruit jam; full, velvety body and hints of spice on the finish.
About the Winery
All the wines from Italy are known for their class and elegance. However, when these Italian wines also have a rich history to boast about, they become wines that you ought to try out. One such historic and elegant Italian wine that we are going to see here is Sartori.
Sartori wines have been in the market for about 100 years now, but still their wines are highly popular because they create a good blend between the modern innovations and traditional winemaking techniques. The Veneto-based wine brand was established during 1898 when Pietro Sartori acquired the vineyard named Villa Maria in the Valpolicella district of Veneto.
The year 2002 proved to be quite remarkable for Sartori as the company joined Italy’s Cantina Colognola, a wonderful opportunity for it to use the 6200 acres of excellent vines in the zones of Valpolicella and Soave. As soon as it got a massive area under vines, the expert team at Sartori immediately hired the world-famous Franco Bernabei as their consultant. The partnership worked wonders for the Sartori brand, to say the least.
The Sartori Group constructed its new winery, I Saltari, in the year 2006 in Mezzane Valley, located in the east of Verona. The grapes processed at this winery are sourced from the I Saltari Vineyards that are spread across 34 hectares.
