Excellent with levels into the neck and good, clean labels.
Founded in 1898, Sartori has become a leading name in fine wines from North East Italy’s Veneto region. The family took its first step when Pietro Sartori bought Villa Maria, a vineyard with a small cellar attached, in the heart of the Veneto region’s Valpolicella district. With a dedication to quality and a boundless passion for quality winemaking, this marked the start of Sartori di Verona. A few years later, Pietro’s son, Regolo, built the winery into the family’s core business and by the 1950s, Regolo’s two sons had expanded the winery and brought these wines to international recognition, exporting them around the world. Today, Andrea Sartori, Pietro’s great-grandson, is at the helm maintaining the winery's core values and reputation.
Bardolino is one of the Italy's great unsung iconic wines. Similar to Valpolicella in that the wine is a blend dominated by the Corvina, Molinara and Rondinella grape varieties, but with up to 15% of the total volume permitted to contain Barbera, Sangiovese, Garganega and Rossignola.
A great looking wine in which would make a special gift.
