From the hills of the Maremma to those of the Veneto region, the Sangiovese and Ciliegiolo grapes give way to Glera, Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, used for two of the best known wines of the Veneto region.
Who does not know Prosecco?
Renowned for its effervescence but also for its versatility, this wine made from the Glera grape exudes fruity and floral aromas, giving it a fresh, light taste.
It can be enjoyed either on its own or as an aperitif: the first sip is like a symphony of bubbles, with a touch of sweetness that makes it perfect for any occasion, be it an informal get-together, a celebration or a moment of pure relaxation.
Not only lightness and crispness, but also full-bodiedness and robustness.
Amarone della Valpolicella is distinguished by its unique method of production and ageing, and was born – it seems – ‘by chance’ from a barrel of Recioto forgotten in the cellar and aged longer than expected.
This ‘mistake’ gave birth to one of the great excellences among Veneto wines, making it famous all over the world.
The grapes, typically Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, are carefully selected and left to dry for several months after the harvest, so as to concentrate flavours and sugars, and give life to a robust and rich wine with dark fruit flavours and spicy notes, ideal for a special occasion.
