Piave is a wine region within the Veneto in northeast Italy. The river of the same name crosses through it diagonally, vineyards scattered throughout its valleys. Wines have been cultivated here for centuries, with written mentions dating as far back as the 16th century.
Raboso is the starring local indigenous red varietal, grown since ancient times, appearing in both blends and single varietal releases. Piave Malanotte is the prized DOCG comprising of at least 95% Raboso (a minimum 70% Raboso del Piave and up to 30% its clonal offshoot Raboso Veronese) with the remaining 5% other reds grown within the Piave zone, usually Carmenère. Under very strict regulations, the wine must consist of 15-30% dried Raboso grapes, creating a wine that is similar in flavor structure to Amarone of spicy cherries.

  • Folonari Moscato 2010


    A bit lean and mineral on the nose with some stemmy apple fruit. More orchard fruit than the more typical citrus flavors with a nice combination of peach and apple that shows a hint of spice on the back end. The finish is short but also on the dry side. 83pts Read More

  • Pizzolato Merlot 2010


    Funky, tire track and barnyard aromas with a little sulfur and dark fruit. Mouth puckering acidity and some oak flavors - a little thin but has some chewiness to the texture. Read More

This is light-bodied and fresh with a nice core of earthy pear and apple fruit, tinged with mineral and bitter almond notes. The acid is citrusy and the wine finishes with a nice long, almost steely, tone. V... Read More
