(ARBIZZANO – VERONA) From the famous tavern-hotel in Verona to the famous Italian wine house. Sartori di Verona produces excellent wines such as Amarone della Valpolicella Classica, Valpolicella Superiore I Saltari and the famous Marani Bianco Veronese.
Sartori di Verona’s History and Philosophy
The origins of an important wine producer can be the most disparate, in general the process takes place through stable growth over the generations, perhaps starting from a small plot of land or a small commercial activity to expand, gradually but surely, the volume of the activity. In Italy, however, many illustrious names have started from a restaurant. Or, in the case of signs with a history of many generations behind them, with a bistro.
This is the case of Sartori della Valpolicella , founded by Pietro Sartori in 1898 following the development of his popular tavern-hotel in Verona. The business grew and it was a commercial and cultural growth: all five of his children graduated, something quite unusual at the time. It was thanks to his son Regolo , endowed not only with great sense of business, but also with a truly fine nose and palate, that a phase of considerable expansion began which continued into the post-war period. His sons Pierumberto and Francothey continued the work, managing to get noticed also in the important export markets of Germany and the USA. And at the beginning of the new millennium, the last but decisive step was taken: the Social Winery of Colognola ai Colli became part of the administration of the Casa Vinicola Sartori , bringing with it an enormous patrimony of vineyards to work, about 2500 hectares in total.
The wines of Sartori di Verona
But Valpolicella and the areas around the city of Verona remain the central focus of Sartori, and the goal is to increase, not only in numbers but above all in quality. The technical staff of the estate, working alongside the famous consultant Franco Bernabei , is dedicated to a series of projects with the aim of achieving precisely this goal. Offerings such as Amarone I Saltari and Valpolicella Superiore I Saltari , both from vineyards in Val Mezzane, have been added to classics such as Valpolicella Classico Ripasso and Marani Bianco Veronese., a true cru whose grapes, followed with extreme attention and affection from the vineyard to the cellar to the bottle, has become a symbol of the quality of the company and the area.
