Venissa Bianco 2018 Imperiale


For years, the Venissa project has been practicing natural agriculture in the vineyard. With the 2018 vintage of Venissa Bianco, the first under the guidance of Matteo Bisol, the project further realizes its vision by extending it from the vineyard to the cellar, thanks to the adoption of spontaneous fermentations and unfiltered bottling.

The season started with high spring rainfall and average temperatures, ensuring excellent vegetative and productive expression for Dorona. Targeted thinning was carried out during the not overly hot summer. September provided optimal conditions for harvesting fully ripe grapes with balanced organoleptic characteristics.



In Giovanni Moretti’s design, the label makes way for a precious gold leaf created by the current descendant of the ancient Berta Battiloro family. The application was done by hand, and the bottle was then reheated in the furnaces of Murano glassworks.
