Why Veneto Wines?
Veneto is one of the leading regions of Italian winemaking.
Stretching from the Alps to the sea coast, Veneto includes a range of fairly high hills of the Eastern Alps, as well as vast, flat lowlands in the Po basin in the south.
Most tourists know the region for its popular capital: Venice, Italy.
But wine connoisseurs know it for Veneto Prosecco and sparking wines.
That’s because the geographical, soil-geological, and climatic diversity of the Veneto region contributes to the fact that a wide variety of wines are produced here.
To date, there are more than eighty varieties of grapes in Veneto, both unique (autochthonous) and common (international).
The most popular grape varieties in Veneto are:
- Prosecco (Glera)
For example, the famous Lamborghini champagne is also made of Prosecco grapes, which can also be found in this Punin Wine catalog. If you want to enjoy some sparkling wines from this region at home, have a look at their selection for true connoisseurs.
This Italy guide offers the perfect starting point for wine lovers exploring Veneto’s vineyards.
1. Lamborghini Prosecco Demi Sec (11%)
Prosecco (Glera) is an aromatic white grape variety grown in the hills in the province of Treviso near the towns of Valdobbiadene and Conegliano.
This is a semi-dry sparkling wine of the yellow straw color and elegant fruity scent.
It pairs really well with seafood (shrimp, oysters), vegetarian dishes, cheese, antipasti, nuts, fish, and meat.
It is also good for an aperitif, a well-known Italian tradition enjoyed before a meal.
Furthermore, it also has the Vivino 4 rating, which is quite fine for the wines from Veneto.
2. Lamborghini Brut Spumante Magnum Gold (12%)
The Lamborghini Brut is a dry and balanced sparkling wine with a fine and persistent perlage.
Perlage refers to the size of the bubbles in a sparkling wine. Generally, the finer the perlage, the better the quality.
The variety of Pinot and Chardonnay makes the Lamborghini Brut a perfect all-round experience. It is the right decision for every occasion.
To that end, the bottle comes in an eye-catching orange gift box.
Lamborghini Brut has a yellow straw color, an intense aroma, and a well-balanced taste.
You can enjoy it as an aperitif alongside seafood, cheese, nuts, and meat dishes.
It also boasts the Vivino 4.1 rating.
3. Ruggeri Prosecco Argeo Treviso Rose (11%)
Ruggeri Prosecco Argeo Treviso Rose wine has a pale pink color, reminiscent of peach blossoms, with an intense fine perlage.
It’s a beautiful-looking and tasting Veneto Prosecco wine.
In the aroma, the typical notes of Glera (white flowers, green apple) are complemented by subtle notes of redcurrant and raspberry, and spicy rosemary.
This is a nice example of wines from Veneto, which are not high in price but of good quality: it has the Vivino 3.8 rating.
This is an ideal choice to accompany pesto pasta or mushroom-based sauces. Try it with beetroot carpaccio or a light salad of cherry tomatoes, greens, and avocado.
It’s also suitable with fruits and berries.
4. Nino Franco Faive Vino Spumante Rose Brut Veneto (12%)
Among the soft sparkling wines from Veneto, Nino Franco Faive Vino Spumante Rose Brut Veneto can be distinguished by a creamy taste and a long aftertaste.
The name of the wine comes from the word faville, which in the Venetian dialect means small, red sparks that fly away from the fire and are easily carried by the wind.
This wine is filled with elegant notes of raspberry, strawberry, currant, cherry, and mineral accents.
It’s an exquisite choice for the aperitif, seafish, seafood, shellfish, and cheese.
5. Bisol Belstar Cuvee Rose Extra Dry Veneto (11.5%)
While being an exceptional example of good Italian wines, this sparkling wine is a blend of several grape varieties (Merlot, Pinot Nero, and Sauvignon Blanc).
In the bouquet of aromas, you’ll notice red fruits and cloves. Such a combination ensures the considerable versatility of the drink!
Bisol Belstar Cuvee Rose Extra Dry Veneto can accompany a light lunch.
You might also serve it with canapés, appetizers, and main fish dishes. Or, enjoy experimenting by pairing this wine with vegetable couscous and stewed shrimp.
6. Ruggeri Spumante Rosé di Pinot Brut Metodo Italiano (12%)
Fresh, fruity, and savory, the Spumante Brut “Rosé di Pinot” is made of Pinot Noir grapes and vinified in steel according to the Charmat method.
This method of sparkling winemaking traps bubbles through carbonation in large steel tanks. You might also know this method as metodo Italiano, the tank method, Marinotti method, and cuve close or “sealed tank.”
It’s a process that takes one to six weeks, which is a much shorter timeframe compared to traditional methods. The results are delightful.
The scents of this delicious wine offer intriguing hints of small berries and red flowers.
The taste is dry, with good structure and great softness.
Served best with meat, cheese, nuts, pasta, and grilled vegetables, this is definitely one sparkling wine you’ll want to try.
7. Ruggeri Giall’Oro Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Dry (11%)
Ruggeri Giall’Oro Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG Extra Dry wine offers a fine and intense bouquet of tones of ripe golden apple and acacia flowers.
It is sweet and fresh, pleasantly light and soft, with good taste characterized by a pleasantly fruity finish.
This wine makes an excellent aperitif and goes well with pasta dishes.
