Veneto

The Veneto

 

The drivers of Venetian wine have long been Soave and Valpolicella, more recently they have been joined by Prosecco and Pinot Grigio.  There is an emerging confidence, largely founded on the world-class wines of Amarone and Soave.

There are many terroir of real significance in the Veneto and pockets of winemakers who are worth seeking out; Zonta (Due Santi) in Bassano del Grappa (Breganze DOC) are fantastic, the Raboso and Sauvignon of the Piave is unique, the Tai rosso from Piovene Porto Godi in Colli Berici is particularly good and the Muscat passito (Fior d’Arancio) and spumante from the Colli Euganei is irresistible.

  1. Monte dei Roari. Pinot Grigio 'Le Tre Rie' 2016

    This is no run of the mill PG, nothing convoluted or dilute here, just pure, lime, jasmine and banana on the aromas, fresh greengage and bitter lemon fruit flavours with tinned asparagus and tomato leaf, mineral, complex and fresh, bone dry and very lovely.

  5. Case Bianche. Prosecco 'Brusole' 2016

    Good intensity and length, more mineral and herb than some vintages joining the lovely pea and lemon sorbet flavours.  A dangerously easy wine.

  6. Conte Emo. La Montecchia 'Fior D'Arancio' Spumante 2015

    A wine that never fails to amuse, joyous orange blossom with feisty, fresh grape flavours and just a touch of subtle lemon and grapefruit.

  7. Case Bianche. Prosecco 'Antico' 2013

    Green apple and herb, more floral and mineral than fruit.  The process means it is a little cloudy and throws some sediment, nought taken out, it’s quite something.

  8. Case Bianche. Prosecco Superiore 'Vigna del Cuc' 2015

    A naturally gifted vintage, beautiful soft. fresh lemon and grapefruit backed with ripe herb and apricot.  Simplicity itself, with a crystalline purity.
