About this winery

Taking their name from the “Little Steamer” boats that used to run along the canals of Venice, Vaporetto have their roots firmly planted in the north of Italy. Their wines are made from fruit grown on some of the finest cool-climate plots, which gives their wines wonderful fruit clarity and poise.

Tasting notes

100% Glera. Straw yellow in colour with light green hints. Fruity apple, light hints of apricot and citron. White and meadow flowers, fresh and pleasant. Elegant on the palate, slightly soft with a fruity aftertaste and subtle floral persistence. Thanks to the minimal residual sugar level, this wine is not only indicated as an aperitif but also pairs perfectly throughout the meal—even with delicate dishes. Best served chilled to 7-8°C.

December 2018

Delicate, charming, silky.
The name Vaporetto pays homage to the little steamer boats, which used to run through the canals of Venice. A charming bubbly made from the traditional Glera grape, it boasts delicate aromas of yellow apples, wildflower honey and candied lemon peel with smoky undertones. It has a favorable mousse and silky texture. The intensity builds from entry to finish, evolving into marmalade and roasted apples; the kiss of sweetness here is not distracting.
