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.

Caveat
Bat and Bottle is Emma and me, there are no teams of copywriters or agencies helping us out and we are constantly limited by time.  For excellent sources of information go to my blog where I have embedded useful links.  These scribblings are personal and flawed.

  1. Col Sandago. Wildbacher Sparkling Brut Rose 2015

    Delicate, fresh and alarmingly easy.  Pale pink, laced with cherry and black forest fruits, a twist of bitters and a suggestion of fragrant rose.

  2. Col Sandago. Wildbacher 2007

    Drying tannin, loganberry to cassis, perhaps some damson, hedgerow, tobacco, earthy mushrooms and leather, really a very elegant wine.

  3. Col Sandago. Wildbacher Metodo Classico

    A fine, taught, mineral spumante.  Gentle mousse and complex red berry fruit nuance, this is the first release of this wine and whilst it may not quite be the finished article, it is a truly fascinating Blanc de Noir.
