This half bottle of Montresor Amarone della Valpolicella Satinato is a modern and accessible example of Amarone, stored in a distinctive black frosted bottle. Noted for its excellence, it earned a Gold medal at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2017.

We invite you to try Montresor Amarone della Valpolicella Satinato, featuring hints of coffee and chocolate on the nose and a palate filled with ripe crushed berries, bitter cherries, and sweet plums. Savour the rich and warm flavours, complemented by supple tannins and a luxurious texture. Pair with red meats, game, or it is fantastic instead of Port after dinner with a cheese board.

About the Producer

One of Verona’s historic houses, founded by Giacomo Montresor in 1892, with a reputation built on high quality, affordable Valpolicella and Amarone. In recent years the range has grown steadily with vineyards being developed in Friuli and northern Veneto, around Conegliano. Their portfolio also includes impressive Prosecco wines.

The winery was family-owned until 2018 when Montresor was acquired by Cevico, a co-operative group based in Emilia Romagna, with 2 highly regarded Veneto co-ops as co-investors. Since then a major investment programme has transformed the company – with modern production facilities and a new winemaking team rejuvenating quality across the board, while access to high quality grapes from the Veneto co-owners has enabled some excellent new wines to be developed.

Vineyard and Winery

Made from a blend of Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara grapes cultivated in Montresor's vineyards in the Valpolicella Classico zone (north-west of Verona). The grapes are hand harvested at the end of October. The late harvested grapes are dried out for four months (until February of the following year) and then crushed. The must is fermented in stainless steel for four months. The wine is aged in Slavonian oak casks and small French barrique for two years.
