Sartori Amarone 2007


Sartori, a leading name in fine wines from northeast Italy’ Veneto region, has stood for vision, innovation, and a boundless passion for quality winemaking. A constant theme over the last century has been the Sartori family’s bond with their land: it is a heritage that has evolved and finds expression in Sartori’s range of classic Veronese wines made from indigenous grapes, as well as in Sartori’s interpretation of international grape varieties, all produced under the guidance of superstar consulting winemaker, Franco Bernabei.

Amarone is the pinnacle of Veronese wine. Sartori Amarone is vinified from a blend of carefully selected hand-picked grapes. The grapes are dried gently on racks for 100 days to concentrate their sugar content.  Traditional pressing and fermentation are followed by a minimum of 3 years in aged Slavonian oak casks.  A robust, warm, and velvety red wine, Sartori Amarone is eminently suited to game, stews, grilled meats, and aged cheeses.
