Ciao Italia

A bright star, this small region in Northeast Italy is one of the country’s largest wine producers. Here, the warm, dry climate of the south intersects with the cooler Alpine climate of the north, creating ideal conditions for growing some of Italy’s most popular and prestigious wines: think Amarone and Valpolicella.

 

KEY GRAPES

Corvina, Rondinella and Corvinone are blended together in Veneto’s world-renowned reds: Amarone and Valpolicella.

 

A BIG RED WINS RAVES WITH SLOW-COOKED LAMB

A lively, regal wine like Amarone — Veneto’s most famous — deserves an intensely flavoured dish. Lamb shanks cooked in red wine with traditional Venetian aromatics are a sublime choice.

 

TIP

Set your slow cooker in the morning and your lamb shanks will be at their best by day’s end for a spectacular weeknight supper.

 

BOLLA VALPOLICELLA CLASSICO

Amarone’s little sister has flavours similar to her older sibling, and this bottle is a superb value for weeknight meals. Try it with mushroom dishes or juicy burgers.

MASI COSTASERA AMARONE CLASSICO DOC

From the leader in Amarone comes this gorgeous wine, made using the appassimento method of drying grapes to concentrate the flavours. Its ripe plum and cherry notes stand up to meaty lamb shanks.
