Corked Wines

While we make every attempt to provide wines of good quality and provenance, we cannot guarantee the personal 'drinkability' for every bottle we sell. It is the industry standard that older wines are purchased "as is" and at the buyer's risk as to the drinkability of the wine. This policy includes "corked" wines (those tainted with TCA and smell of wet cardboard). This wine fault occurred during the cork selection process and is completely out of our control. For the aforementioned reasons, no refund or exchange will be granted.

Amarone della Valpolicella is an intensely flavored dry red wine made from dried (passito) grapes. It is made in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy, and is one of the region's most prestigious red wines.

Emblem of the Giacomo Montresor Cellars, the satin finish bottle was patented at the beginning of the 1900s with the aim of protecting the wine from the ocean sun during the first exports to North America. This wine is made from a location that is historically oldest area of ​​the hilly Valpolicella. The grapes, chosen bunch by bunch, are harvested in the second ten days of September and left to dry in crates until the right sugar and organoleptic concentration is reached. Wine is aged in oak barrels for 6 years, with subsequent refinement in steel before bottling. 

The long history of the Montresor family boasts illustrious ancestors, such as Count Claude de Montresor, adviser to the Duke of Orleans in 17th century France.

In the mid-1600s a branch of the family moved to Veneto near Lake Garda, an area known for the quality of its moraine lands, and there they found the right environment to continue to develop one of the main family businesses: viticulture.

In 1892 Giacomo Montresor gave life to the Cantine Giacomo Montresor. In 1946, After several years of refinements in the oenological field, the first Recioto Amaro della Valpolicella was born: the Rustego. An absolutely new wine for the time, the result of the withering that took place on the Corvina arelle.
