Il Barroccio white comes from the Veneto region in Italy. It is a blend of Garganega, Chardonnay, which contributes to its mouthfeel, and a splash of Sauvignon Blanc. It displays aromas of stone fruit, with an underlying minerality and a zesty finish. Blended especially for Corney & Barrow.
"This lively white wine is refreshing and bursting with flavours of white peaches, pears and almonds."
Italy’s Veneto wine region has played a pivotal part in Italy’s wine culture since Roman times, boosted by its strategic location close to Venice and the Adriatic. Today the Veneto is a thriving wine region, responsible for almost a sixth of Italy’s wine production and the source of Italy’s most successful contemporary wine ‘brand’ Pinot Grigio, a light-bodied dry white wine made from vineyards on the plains. Behind Venice, the Conegliano hills are home to Prosecco, the white grape and sparkling white wine style now taking the world by storm.
