Sartori Soave Classico Doc 2014
This wine is bright light yellow in colour. It has a floral fruity aroma, and it leaves a nice aftertaste of almonds.
Sartori bianco Veronese IGT “Marani” Amaron 2013
This light yellow wine has a very heavy aroma of fruit and a little honey. It is flavourful, with a strong mineral taste.
Sartori Valpolicella Classico DOC 2014
This dark red wine has a nice fruity bouquet, and was easy to the palate with a hint of black fruit flavour.
Sartori rosso Veronese IGT “Regolo” 2012
This wine has a pleasant bouquet reminiscent of woodland berries. It was smooth and dry with a subtle black cherry flavour.
Sartori Classico Amarone DOCG “Rejus” 2010
This dark red wine quickly became the author’s favourite. It had a smooth full-bodied taste that was almost like port, with a nice red-fruit aroma.
During the wine-tasting, we were also treated to a buffet style-dinner prepared by our host Portofino Ristorante Italiano itself. It was a simple affairs of good old fashioned italian foods, from a salad, risotto, pasta, pizzas, chicken cordon bleu, finished off with a nice dessert. Coupled with some good company, the experience left everybody in high spirits. We will definitely be looking forward to the next event.
