Veneto Wine

The Veneto, located in the north-east of Italy, is a region that contributes a significant percentage, nearly a quarter, of the country’s total wine industry. Several of the major DOCs, including Soave, Bianco di Custoza, Valpolicella and Bardolino, plus Amarone, are produced here. The beloved sparkling wine Prosecco, while produced all over the country, has its origins and its best expression in the Veneto and is its own DOC.

The history of wine-making in the region can be traced back as far as a few centuries BC in the Bronze Age. The Romans eventually took over, as they were wont to do, and began dividing plots of land into more organized vineyard sites. They also established the cities that would become Venice (Venezia) and Verona, both major hubs for fashion, art, trade and wine. There are 6th century written documents by Cassiodoro, a magistrate of Visigoth King Theodorus, describing a sweet wine made from half dried grapes in Verona that is mostly likely an early version of Amarone or Read more »

  • Lamarca Prosecco NV

    Snoothrank:

    This nice little dry Prosecco (not really traditional - but more in the modern vein, it seems) has a good lemon nose and white toast and lemon palate with no bitterness on the finish - which is a pleasant surprise. This is the beer or wines - except from certain select areas (Valdobbiadene, exempli gratia, vinum pucinum Galliae mihi). If you ca... Read More

  • Maculan Palazzotto Cabernet Sauvignon Breganze 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Quite pronounced aromas still holding some heat and powdered sugar, chalk and red raspberry aromas with a touch of perfumed floral violet. Smooth and creamy in the mouth, mostly with red ripe berries and blackberries, some leather and tobacco hints at an ability to age a few years with a finish of vanilla, cinnamon and dark chocolate.

  • Summer in Veneto, and a chilled bottle of prosecco sees you nicely through the day. The prosecco festival in Valdobbiadene is not to be missed, and many other neighbouring towns also get in on the act on weekends. The Bartolomiol is probably the best I've tasted.

  • More than ten years ago a holiday dinner at a lovely northern Italian restaurant led me to trying my first taste of Valpolicella. I fell in love with it and have spent the last decade or so atoning for the lost years drinking dreadful mass-produced white zinfandel and wedding dreck. I have developed a wide-ranging palate and particularly a tas...

From the Giuseppe Valpolicella "Le Bine" Ripasso It's delicate and stylish $14., then there is the Caterini Zardini same Winery's Valpolicella DOC. A "Baby Amarone" $20. to the top two Gius...
