Cooking: The spirit of Veneto

Northern Italian traditional cuisine is hearty, and naturally so are the wines that come from that part of the world, produced aound the foothills of the Alps.

Valpolicella is a light wine but it is the basis for bolder reds. it is fagrant, dry, crisp red wine with tart cherry flavors, and is made in Veneto from Corvina, Rondinella and Molinara, like most of the local wines.

After the harvest for Valpolicella, pickers leave some of the best grapes on the vine until they’re so ripe that they start to shrivel.
