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 »

  • Gran Passione Gavi 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing shifting nose of aged dried cheese, light toast, white blossom and passion fruit. Quite floral and tropical in the mouth and showing some lemon and butter notes with a nutty finish. A complex wine with a lot to offer. Read More

  • Gran Passione Rosso 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Richly earthed notes of cherry and cranberry with a nice jamminess on the nose. Nicely full in the mouth with well-integrated but medium-light tannins, floral notes of rose petal and raspberry notes that finishes with a hint of licorice. Read More

  • Gran Passione Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Richly spiced earth and leather aromas with full fruited notes of cherry and raspberry with some bramble fruit. Refreshing acidity and more bold red fruit flavors in the mouth show this has a lot to offer, with a fair bit of earthy spice coming through towards the long, black cherry finish.90 pts Read More

  • Tedeschi San Rocco Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A perfect Valpolicella. Nice acidity with fairly light tannins. Went well with our pasta and meatballs and sausage. My home made pasta sauce was perfect for this wine. This wine can probably last for several more years. Read More

  • Villa Maffei Valpolicella Classico Ripasso 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent aromas of almond and cinnamon lead to a rich palate of cherry, spice and oak, with a velvety finish. I enjoyed this wine with sharp cheeses. What a fantastic taste on the palate. Decant this wine and it will mellow out. The wine tasters group loves this wine for its unique taste. Read More

  • Sansonina Merlot 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy aromas of mushroom and blackberries fill the glass mixing with some dark molasses and light teriyaki notes. Juicy on entry, this shows pleasantly bright and fruity and well balanced, with chewy chocolate and coffee playing across the midpalate against dark blackberry and black currant fruit. Finishes clean and light with just a hint of he... Read More
