3 essential Veronese wines to try when you’re in town

You might come to Verona for several reasons. It is one of the most romantic cities in the world, home to Romeo and Juliet’s love story. It is also unique in its ancient beauty and some even say it’s magical. You might also want to come for our football teams—although, granted, we are not precisely famous for that (go Chievo!) But what we can all agree on is that Verona, and the Veneto region, is a privileged producer of some of the finest wines in the country. So today we bring you 3 essential Veronese wines you should try before you leave.

1. Valpolicella. East of Lake Garda, the Valpolicella region has been producing wine since the Roman age. And no doubt why: this red wine is delicious! Experts say it’s fruity with notes of cherry and it is easy to pair with food. You will find it in most restaurants and wine bars of the region.

2. Amarone. If wines had a prom king, Amarone would get the crown every year. It has become one of the most appreciated Italian wines for its rare making technique. Wineries use the same grapes as for the Valpolicella wines, but Amarone grapes are left to dry, ferment and age for at least two years before bottling the wine. Word from the experts is that it’s structured, powerful, elegant and smooth, with high alcohol content. A must-drink!

3. Soave. In the prom metaphor, Soave would always be Amarone’s queen. It is one of the most consumed white wines in Italy and the most exported internationally. Soave has been produced in the region of the same name, at the East of Verona, from the middle ages. Experts say it is light, dry and savory and it is very common to drink it as an aperitif.
