The dominant grape in Valpolicella, Corvina becomes a better-than-average table wine from Sartori di Verona. The winery, located in northeastern Italy, gives this wine an ample dose of oak at 12-24 months but the tannins and finish remain smooth. There is a lovely hint of cherry on the palate which evolves to sour cherry on the finish. It is a medium-bodied wine that comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Pair with simple pasta dishes, pizza, or mild stews.
