Wine Review Report:

Last reviewed: 6 January, 2014

The region (Ital. Veneto) is located in the north-east of Italy and is divided into the provinces of Belluno, Padua, Rovigo, Treviso, Venice (metropolitan city), Verona and Vicenza. It borders the four regions of 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 or climate is also shaped by the 150-kilometre-long Adriatic coast. The lush vineyards were already cultivated by the Etruscans. Later the Romans came and appreciated the ancient wine...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, with origins dating back at least to 1,000 BC. At that time, the Etruscans appeared in central Italy and settled areas of the four present-day regions of Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria.

It is permitted in the Veneto region in the DOCG wines Bardolino and...

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...
