This summer vacation we went to Verona. I heard about an island near Venice with an ancient grape and a beautiful vineyard surrounded by water.
The Mazzorbo island is connected with a footbridge to the Burano island and the vineyards are just a few steps away. We took the Vaporetto from Jesolo Treporti and 15 minutes later we came ashore.
Something about an ancient golden grape... in Venice!! Sounds like a great story #winelovers
On my blog I will soon publish the whole story. Now about the wine.
Venissa – Bianco
The wine shows a beautiful golden color with amber reflections.
On the nose orange peel, peach, honey and sherry hints with, flowers and sweet licorice.
On the palate well balanced and good interaction between the acidity and velvet taste. Flavours of honey, nuts, peach and saltiness. a unique wine and I have never tasted something similar. Some will like it and some will dislike it. For me this was an great experience to taste this wine from this unique grape.
