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 »

  • Lamarca Prosecco D.O.C NV

    Snoothrank:

    Entry level prosecco, though nice for the price point, it shows. A little honeysuckle, apple and plenty of tiny bubbles it suffices. Drink now - 83 points - Paul. Read More

  • Colli Berici Oratorio di San Lorenzo Carmenere Riserva 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bold and assertive mixed berry fruit with concentrated aromas and fresh floral spice on the nose. Concentrated and focused on the palate, this over delivers on fruit flavors of blackberry, black cherry and strawberry with rough tannins drying the mouth towards the finish where they're supported by butter cream and vanilla, loads of acidity and a...

Masieri 2013 at a friend's book release party earlier today.  The nose is a tapestry of red fruit but the earthy palate is most impressive.  Echos of terrain, rock, black tar and coffee bean suggested I was sipping a much pricie...
