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 »

  • Tiamo Procecco

    Snoothrank:

    White blossom and potpourri on the very floral nose. Somewhat thin and mellow in the mouth with more floral notes, some mild lemon and a demurringly tart finish that is ever so slightly creamy. Read More

  • Corte Armani Valpolecella Classico Superior Ripasso 2010

    Snoothrank:

    88-89 points and very well done. This is not a "baby Amarone" for nothing. Good fruit raspbrerry, dark cherry with a touch of blackberry thrown in for good measure. Enough spice and pepper to give a little added snap to the acidity. The tannins are amazingly light yet aggressive enough to give a little chew to the wine. Very enjoyable drinker an... Read More

  • La Fiera Pinot Grigio 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Pale lemon color, light peach and melon aromas. Delicate and light flavors of tart lemon, melon and a nice citrus zestiness. Nice, clean palate on this classic Pinot Grigio. Read More

    Wine review by LetUsTaste


  • 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
