    • The Label: In Giovanni Moretti’s creation the label has been replaced by a precious sheet of gold fashioned by the modern day descendent of the ancient Battiloro family. The leaf was applied by hand and the bottle was then re-fired in the ovens on the island of Murano.

  • Tasting Notes

    • The wine is golden in color and instantly spicy on the nose with iodine notes and nuances of fleshy yellow fruit. On the palate it is well-structured, full and velvety with dominant almond notes and traces of yellow peaches and honey. The finale is dry, savory, full and persistent. Venissa is a great collector’s white wine with a long life expectancy.
