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 »

  • Da Luca Pinot Grigio 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly neutral on the nose with pithy citrus aromas, hints of pistachio, and some raw green herbal notes. Bright and juicy in the mouth, this does deliver some attractive citrus fruit and pith flavors early on the palate and reverts to that hint of pistachio and pithy character with a hint of honey on the backend through the modest if clean and...

  • Assume you're talking dessert wines? That's the only version I've ... ... had, a few times in the Veneto.Your profile says you're in the States. Are you actually in Italy?Sounds like a very, very specialized niche, even though there was some cachet around it way back when I started drinking in the '70s. Have barely heard anything of it since ... Read More

  • Tedeschi Soave Classico Capitel Monte Tenda 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Deeply aromatic on the nose with waxy base notes, lots of polleny accents and hints of peppery spice, incense, and dried peach fruits. Rich and slightly waxy on entry, this shows powerfully in the mouth with fine mouthgrab and a wonderfully well knit together texture. The flavors of peach and slightly honeyed citrus fruit are bright and vivid in... Read More

  • Summer in Veneto, and a chilled bottle of prosecco sees you nicely through the day. The prosecco festival in Valdobbiadene is not to be missed, and many other neighbouring towns also get in on the act on weekends. The Bartolomiol is probably the best I've tasted.

  • More than ten years ago a holiday dinner at a lovely northern Italian restaurant led me to trying my first taste of Valpolicella. I fell in love with it and have spent the last decade or so atoning for the lost years drinking dreadful mass-produced white zinfandel and wedding dreck. I have developed a wide-ranging palate and particularly a tas...
