Veneto

Veneto, located in the North-East corner, is by far the largest producing region in the country, accounting for 20% of all wine made in Italy. Amarone, Valpolicella and Ripasso are the first wines that come to mind when people think about the Veneto, but almost three quarters of production is white or sparkling wine, including Prosecco. Polenta, boiled cornmeal, is the staple of the region. Toward the Venice coast, seafood dishes are quite popular, including salt cod, sardines and cuttlefish. Further inland, horsemeat, radicchio and mushrooms are commonly found. Bigoli, a long udon-type noodle, is seen fairly regularly as is tortellini, a small stuffed pasta.
