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 »

  • Candoni Prosecco Brut NV


    A hint of almond and yeast on the nose with light honey. Tart lemon and melon notes with puckering acidity and bright flavors with sharp bubbles that melt away towards the midpalate. Comes off clean in the mouth and showing pleasant minerality and finishing with a touch of toasted yeast. Read More

  • Lamarca Prosecco NV


    Clean green apple and lemon aromas. A hint of sweetness on the palate, but not quite off-dry, with pronounced notes of peach and melon. A lactic acid note carries a creaminess on the palate that is matched quite well by the medium bubbles, white peach fruit and steely minerality. Towards the finish there's a pleasant biscuity cereal note that li... Read More

  • Carletto Prosecco


    This has creamy aromas of cheese rind with peach and green apple fruit that's fairly bright on the nose. It's very clean and fresh on the palate, with peach, green apple and lemon notes with white cranberry tartness and pleasant minerality. This is a dry wine but there's a hint of sweetness coming through. Read More

  • Tenuta Polvaro Prosecco Extra Dry NV


    Light apple aromas are very delicate. In the mouth this is clean and light on its feet, with soft and elegant bubbles hiding a touch of cream and white peach flavors. Towards the finish there's a pleasant toast to the yeast note that peeks through fruit notes of apricot, tangerine, and grapefruit. Read More

  • Malibran "Credamora" Col Fondo Valdobbiadene Prosecco 2013


    Frizzante style with drawn butter aromas and savory yeast on top of lemon and melon notes. Creamy texture in the mouth with lemon curd and pink grapefruit with bright acidity, staying clean throughout but turning quite soft and almost disappearing on the finish with the slightest hint of fresh melon.
