WSI95 The wine is golden in color and instantly spicy on the nose with salty notes and nuances of fleshy yellow fruit. On the palate it is well-structure, full and velvety with quince notes and traces of licorice and honey. The finish is dry, savory, fully and persistent. Venissa is a great collector’s white wine with a long life expectancy.
Fermentation: 100% in stainless steel tanks, temperature-controlled, maceration up to 30 days with manual punch down, extended skin contact adds to color pigment, phenols and tannins.
Varietal: 100% Dorona di Venezia.Venissa is the perfect example of a “walled vineyard.” It was restored by the Bisol family of Prosecco fame, and in it grows the Dorona di Venezia variety, native to the Venetian Lagoon and cultivated for centuries until nearly becoming extinct after the great flood of 1966. Today, from this rediscovered gem, the Bisol family produces fewer than 4000 bottles per year of Venissa. It is one of the most sought-after white wines in the world by wine enthusiasts, a unique wine with notes of salinity that recalls the lagoon and its perfumes.
