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 »

  • Lamberti Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie Santepietre 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Great value here for a sub-15 dollar bottle. The nose is delicate - I picked up some white peach, meyer lemon, marzipan, and sweetgrass. More of the same on the palate - soft and light. Mouthwatering but soft/tangy acidity and surprisingly long length. I really appreciated the length of this simple and delicate wine. Definitely quaffable. Read More

  • Bertani Recioto Della Valpolicella 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Really interesting Italian dessert wine. Big hit of raspberry jam on the nose and the palate along with ripe black cherry. Not overly sweet for a sweet wine but a decent amount or residual sugar to support the acidity. There's a touch of smokey chocolate on the backend that goes nicely with the medium finish. Read More
