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 »

  • Pieropan Soave Classico 2014


    Juicy aromas of pineapple and lemon with a bit of heat and spice. Medium-light bodied in the mouth, this is fairly simple but refreshing with notes of lemon and light melon, a hint of herb and a medium-short finish. This wine would pair excellently with a variety of delicate foods because it is unassuming and approachable while still having enou... Read More

  • Allegrini Veronese Palazzo Della Torre 2011


    Intriguing and lovely sun baked fig and dusty black currant with savory notes of mushroom and loamy earth. This explodes on the palate with bunches of bright red raspberry, cherry and currant, filling the mouth with acidity and supported by tannic structure, towards the finish there's a tart topnote and a tingling acidity remaining but the clean...

  • Hey, Burgundy isn't really that far away! The guy was fairly specific ... ... as much as Piedmont and Veneto.The poster admitted not knowing much about Italian wine and perhaps his friend wouldn't know a Brunello from a Barolo.  I gave two good examples of Northern Italian wine that can be put away for years.  They might hate Amarone!&nbs Read More

  • Toddo,When I think Northern Italy, I think Veneto and that means Amarone.  However, Piedmont is also North and Barolo is another good one for cellaring.  Where are you in the US?  Are there some good wine shops near you?  If so, go see what their stock of Amarone and/or Barolo is and what years they are.  Some vintages are better than others.  2...

  • Villa Cappelle Pinot Grigio 2014


    Pale straw in color. Youll love the aromas of passionfruit, pear and Golden Delicious apple. The wine is rich and creamy with well-balanced acidity that helps keep the palate refreshed. A long and refreshing citrus finish. Easy pairing for all types of dishes. Read More

  • 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...
