Santi Sortesele - Pinot Grigio - Valdadige
Overview: Santi traces its origins to 1843, when Carlo Santi established a wine cellar in the village of Illasi situated behind the Lessini Mountains, between the hills of Colognola and Lavagno. Santi is known and respected for its Veneto and Trentino wines.
Santi is situated in the heart of the most acclaimed wine growing zones in the Veneto near Lake Garda. Devoted to the production of Soave Classico, Pinot Grigio, Valpolicella and Amarone, Santi wines are mainly crafted from estate-grown fruit, or from long-standing relationships under the supervision of the Santi winemaking team.
In Trentino dialect, ‘sortesele’ is the diminutive of ‘sorti,’ or “small parts of vineyard.” According to ancient custom, Sortesele were large parcels of vineyard for which the heirs of an agricultural property drew lots.
