Grapes

From fruity red Valpolicella complementing its intense Amarone and sweet Recioto counterparts, Veneto is armed with a formidable portfolio of red wines to go with its refreshing whites, such as Soave and sparkling Prosecco. Although much of the new vineyard area that supported Veneto's increased wine output was of questionable viticultural quality, today more than 25 percent of the region's wine is made and sold under DOC/DOCG titles.

Rondinella

Rondinella is an Italian red-wine grape variety that most commonly appears in the blend for Recioto and Amarone, to add herbal flavors and to plump up the wine.

Glera

This white grape mainly grows in Veneto, most famously in Conegliano and Valdobbiadene zones. Glera is the famous Prosecco grape, which is semi-aromatic, complex and refined in fragrance, with light floral and fruity flavors.

Corvinone

There are no monovarietal Corvinone wines, as this grape lends itself to Amarone blends. Its name means “Big Corvina.” Corvinone’s typical berry size and bunch size is larger than its counterpart, Corvina. Both Corvina and Corvinone are thick-skinned and so suitable for drying to make Amarone and Recioto wines.

Corvina

This grape varietal is unique to the Veneto region of Italy. A well-made Corvina will call violet, blackberry, and red cherry to mind, with a delicate aromatic touch of fresh herbs on the nose. It is very high in tannins and also tends to have a bitter finish, though typically, you won’t see this grape as a monovarietal wine. It’s typically blended with Molinara, Corvinone, and others for Amarone della Valpolicella DOCG.

Wines

. Veneto most important wines are Valpolicella, Amarone, Soave and Prosecco. The cuisine of the Veneto is characterized partly by the carbohydrates eaten all over the region. Unlike many parts of Italy, pasta is not the staple, that role is played by the double act of polenta and rice but also fish dishes due to that the region is located on the Adriatic coastline.
