Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 13 September, 2019

The region (ital. Veneto) is located in the northeast of Italy and borders on four other regions. These are Friuli-Venezia Giulia to the east, Trentino-Alto Adige and Lombardy to the west, and Emilia-Romagna to the south. The northern tip borders on Austria. The landscape and climate is also characterised by the 150 kilometres long Adriatic coast. The lush wine landscape was already cultivated by the Etruscans. Later, the Romans came and appreciated the ancient wine Raeticum, mentioned by Pliny the Elder (23-79), supposedly a precursor of...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, the beginnings go back at least to before 1,000 BC. It was at this time that the Etruscans appeared in central Italy, settling areas in the four regions of today's Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The origins of Italian wine culture lie above all in the Greek colonisation, which brought Greek wine culture to the peninsula, beginning in the 10th century BC on the island of Sicily as well as Campania and Calabria. The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the ideal land for...

The red grape variety (also Nessuno Conosciuto) comes from Italy. The earliest mention dates back to 1882 and the few synonyms testify to this relatively short history. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2006, it is the result of a presumably natural cross between Corvina Veronese and an unknown variety(Wine Grapes). The medium to late-maturing, very high-yielding vine is resistant to most fungal diseases, but susceptible to wood disease Esca. It produces colourful and acidic red wines with cherry aroma. A somatic mutation with pink berries is Rondinella Rosa. The Rondinella variety...

The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Corvina Grossa, Corvino, Corvinon, Corvinone a Foglia Glabra, Corvinone Veronese and Cruinon. It must not be confused with Corbina or (possibly related) Corvina Veronese, despite the fact that the synonyms or morphological similarities seem to indicate this. The late ripening, high-yielding vine is susceptible to downy mildew. Because of its loose berry character, it is very suitable for drying the grapes or for Recioto wines. It is authorised in the Veneto region for the DOCG wines...

The red grape variety comes from Italy. Synonyms are Brepon, Brepon Molinaro, Breppon, Breppon Molinaro, Molinara Ciara, Molinara Rada, Molinara Rossa, Molinaro, Mulinara, Rossanella, Rossara, Uva del Mulino, Uva Salà and Uva Salata. The name (mill) is derived from the berries, which look like they have been dusted with flour. It must not be confused with the Molinera, which has a similar name. The late ripening vine is resistant to fungal diseases. It produces light red, acid-rich red wines with relatively low alcohol content, which are mainly used as blends. The variety is grown mainly in the Veneto region,...
