Winery

Sartori winery is located in Valpolicella area, in the province of Verona, and rises among the green hills dotted with vines, olive trees and cherry trees. It was founded by Pietro Sartori in 1898 who, thanks to his entrepreneurial skills, has made it one of the most famous wineries in Italy, producing sober, elegant, refined but at the same time traditional wines.


The fourth generation made up of grandchildren has managed to make these Veronese wines well known and appreciated all over the world. The winery is located right inside the beautiful seventeenth-century villa that Pietro Sartori bought at the time and which today is the symbol of this Italian winery.

Pairings

Wine pairing notes

The lamb of this dish, from the province of Ningxia Hui, with its peculiar taste and texture, is a Chinese delicacy. The full bodied Corte Brà Amarone is a well-deserved, harmonious matching. And not just because the Tan sheep of the region are reared with musical harmonies as well. This Amarone’s aromas complement the pungency of the Chinese Angelica and its fruity flavours and acidity match also the proteins and the noble fat of the dish.
