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 »

  • I Stefanini Monte di Fice Soave Superiore Classico 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Complex aromas are nutty and earthy on the nose with notes of oak and dried peach, apricot and lemon. Nicely spiced and wooded in the mouth with restrained citrus that brightens the palate alongside fruit notes of golden berries, fresh melon and green apple with a zesty, bold finish. Read More

  • I Stefanini Monte de Toni Soave Classico 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Nutty and fresh in the glass with lemon notes and emollient hints of floral sweetness on the nose. This dances in the mouth with bright citrus, touches of pineapple and green apple fruit and a tart note towards the finish that plays against a hint of cream. Read More

  • I Stefanini Il Selese Soave 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly spiced aromas of pear, lychee and white blossom. Juicy and full on the palate with good acidity, this is nicely balanced with white peach opening the way for tart citrus and lemon merengue at the finish. Read More
