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 »

    Snoothrank:

    Pungent licorice, black cherry and raspberry fruit on the nose with a fair bit of heat still in the bottle and a hint of sawdust and earth. In the mouth there's the same black cherry, earth and licorice, adding in layers of blackberry and baking spice. Read More

  • Buglioni Il Disperato 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very unique aromas of kiwi, peach, banana, pineapple and bay leaf on the nose. In the mouth it's somewhat less exciting but still very pleasant and very easy drinking, mostly featuring banana, kiwi, green apple and sunflower seeds, and just a touch of cream on the finish. Read More

  • Botter Di Maria Prosecco DOC NV

    Snoothrank:

    Light melon and lemon aromas are slightly waxy and have a touch of tropical fruit as well. Tangerine and melon flavors with enough fresh acidity to buoy this, it's a clean light prosecco with toast and yeast notes to finish out. Read More

  • Bussola Valpolicella Ripasso 2004

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a bright ruby color in the glass, with just the faintest hint of amber along the edges. The nose is quite nice, with earthy notes of cedar, leather and fresh herbs over concentrated fruit notes of ripe plum and raisin. The taste is sublime, with a burst of sweet cherry and anise at the outset, which transitions to some espresso and... Read More
