Description

Sartori - Amarone della Valpolicella Classico
"Corte Bra" DOCG 2012


A blend of 50% Corvina, 30% Corvinone, 15% Rondinella, 5% Oseleta. Ripe fruit aromas, with notes of blackcurrant, raspberry, and dried herbs. Full bodied on the palate with rich fruit flavours, bright acidity, and a lingering finish
Our recommendation for this bottle is as a fabulous fullblown after-dinner wine, or to go with red meat, game, quails and richly flavoured dishes. Recommended decanting for an hour
The grapes of the “Corte Brà” estate are carefully selected, put into small plastic crates and dried in well ventilated rooms for about 3-4 month. When the best grade of dryness is reached, the grapes are selected again. Only the best grapes are used for the production of this wine.The fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks lasts for about 30 days to develop the optimal level of alcohol.After a period in concrete tanks, where it undergoes Malolactic Fermentation, the wine is aged in medium- and smallsized oak casks for about 4 years. After bottling the wine refines for at least 6 months.
