Despite the high quality of its finest wines, Veneto is best known for Soave, which is among the top-selling imported wines in the U.S. and is often made in industrial quantities.
Varietals Grown in the Veneto
Amarone from Veneto
This region of northeastern Italy is also the source of Amarone--a very rich, concentrated, high-alcohol, dry red Veneto wine made from air-dried grapes pressed weeks or months after the harvest.
Veneto's Port-like Recioto della Valpolicella is one of Italy's best sweet white wines and is perfect with any chocolate dessert.
