RONCO DEL CERO’ – One of the best wines to get through quarantine
Venica & Venica is honoured to have been listed by FORBES as one of the best 15 wines to drink… to make the most of this period of self-isolation!
Victoria James, beverage director of the Michelin-starred restaurant “Cote” in New York City and author of ‘Wine Girl,’ recommends in an article published in FORBES our “RONCO DEL CERO'”, Sauvignon 2017 DOC Collio and says:
“In the far northeast of Italy in the Friuli region, the Venica & Venica winery is located just a stone’s throw from the Slovenian border. Ronco del Cerò is the name of the hill where Giampaolo Venica’s great-grandfather first planted Sauvignon Blanc vines,’ says James. “For me, the wine always tastes similar to Sancerre and the Californian examples. But it has more weight and tropical notes. Giampaolo ferments the wine on his yeasts which gives it a kind of softness on the palate and extra flavour. It is my favourite to drink with polenta, but it is also great with poultry, pork and pasta with clams and olive oil.”
