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.

  2. Conte Emo. La Montecchia. Raboso 'Forzate' 2011

    A dark and brooding spiced wine with drying tannins and spot on good acidity - a very fine vintage of this wine.

  3. 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.

  4. Recchia Masua di Jago. Valpolicella Superiore 2014

    Damson, burnt caramel and fig aromas, elegant black cherry fruit, a touch of menthol, clove and strawberry jam.

  5. Bionda. Valpolicella Classico 2014

    What a wine – almost like biting into an apple with the purest black cherry fruit, incredibly floral, an exceptional light red.

  6. 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.

  7. Col Sandago. Prosecco 'Undici' 2013

    Pineapple and melon, ripe and rounded with freshening apple and lime, seriously lovely pea and elderflower on the finish.

  8. Conte Emo. La Montecchia Carmenere 'Progetto Recupero' 2009

    This is a full wine with deep concentrated fruit, all damson and bramble, shot through with spice.

  9. Conte Emo. La Montecchia Merlot 2014

    A fascinating Merlot which is simply fantastically drinkable with its fresh, minty, sour cherry fruit which developed real weight and structure over twelve months. 

    The top wines of the estate were not made in 2014 so this wine had access to the best fruit.

  10. 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.
