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. Ca la Bionda. Valpolicella six bottle case

    An homage to one of Italy’s finest wines and a beautiful experience, from Valpolicella Classico (the light one), to Superiore (almost Pinot-like), to the Ripasso (getting big now) and then the Amarones (huge).

  4. Monte dei Roari. Rossanel Rosato Frizzante 2016

    Raspberry and sour cherry, russet apple and wild honey, a brilliantly refreshing wine.  There is zero residual sugar, it doesn’t need it, ‘Petnat’ at its very best.

  5. Righetti. Valpolicella Ripasso 'Campolieti' 2012

    Coffee, chocolate and ripe fruit on the nose, there is more than hint of Amarone in the background. This is a full and forward wine that is delicious when young and always has the structure to improve for years.

  6. Conte Emo. La Montecchia 'Forzate Antica Maniera' 2001 Magnum

    An Epic! Drying tannins underlying porcini and truffle and fading forest fruit, a wine which has been allowed to express the vine, no attempt has been made to appease modern tastes.
