THE TRES VENEZIE
The area around the canal city of Venice is called the Tre Venezie because there are three main wine regions here.
The most famous white wine from here is Soave (swa VAY), which at one time was the most imported white wine here to the US. Saove means “soft” in Italian, and it’s made from the native grapes Garganega (gar guh NEG ah) and our old friend Trebbiano.
Featured Wine: Pinot Grigio (GREE jah oh) from here has become very popular here in the States. Italian Pinot Grigios are light and minerally with hints of apple and pear.
Featured Wine: Toccato Pinot Grigio
The most famous red wine from the Tre Venezie is Valpolicella (val pole e CHEL oh). It is made from three indigenous grapes, Corvina (core VEE nah), Molinara (mow LEAN ah rah) and Rondinella (ron DEE nel ah).
Featured Wine: Pirovano Valpolicella
Valpolicella can be punched-up through drying some of the grapes, thus concentrating their flavors and sugars, before the beginning of fermentation. These wines are labeled Amarone (aw MAH row nay), which is a full-bodied, high-alcohol, raisin-flavored wine.
Featured Wine: La Colombaia Amarone della Valpolicella
