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.

  6. 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.
