FEATURES

  • Corte Brà is a limited-production, single-vineyard Amarone, and the crown jewel in the Sartori portfolio.
  • The grapes for Corte Brà are carefully selected and dried in well-ventilated rooms for about 3 to 4 months. The best grapes are hand-selected and fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel for about 30 days, and then transferred to traditional tanks for malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged in Slavonian oak casks and French tonneaux for 4 years followed by 1 year in French barriques. Wood-aging is followed by a minimum of 6 months of bottle refinement.
  • The I Saltari winery is located in the Mezzane Valley, east of Verona, and is dedicated exclusively to the classic grape varieties indigenous to the region: Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, and Croatina.
  • The I Saltari winery is named after the mercenary vineyard guardians, saltari, hired by vineyard owners from the 16th through the 18th century to protect their grapes from thieves and bandits. The name reflects the winery’s own dedication to defending tradition and expressing its vineyards’ unique terroir.
