Soave Classico Wine

for this region?

 

Soave Classico are wines that are produced in a specific growing area within the Soave DOC in the Veneto, Italy. Like many of the other pillars of Italian wines such as Chianti, growing regions expanded and Classico zones were delineated to refer to both a DOC’s original (classic) viticultural area, and often its highest quality wines. The zone extends between the town of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone. 
 
Like the rest of Soave, Classicos are produced predominately from a minimum 70% Garganega grapes, with the rest Chardonnay and/or Trebbiano di Soave (Verdicchio). Trebbiano Toscano and Pinot Bianco, which were once allowable, have now been banned from the blend due to their inferior qualities.  
 
The Soave Classico zone also produced Recioto di Soave Classico, the sweet version. But it does not include the spumante version.

  • Inama Soave Veneto Non-Certified Organic/Sustainable 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is medium yellow in the glass with an enticing yellow water lily scent that, if you've never encountered it, is somewhat like lemon oil. Allspice, kiwi fruit, and lemon loaf come together on the palate with noteworthy viscosity and a medium finish. Somewhat warm with mild almond bitters. 88 points. Read More

  • Prà "Colle Sant' Antonio" Soave Classico Barrique 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was gorgeous with plum, raisin, minerals and undergrowth. On the palate, it was remarkably balanced and fresh yet still showed a tamed level of richness as notes of ripe black cherry and soil lingered into the long finish. (Pra was awarded the Snail symbol by Slow Wine, representing a winery that they particularly like for the way it in... Read More

  • Duca del Frassino Soave Classico 2007

    Snoothrank:

    It should be called gold wine and not white wine. Love the golden sheen very much! Nose and flavour wise, is very rich and fruity. Definitely memorable! Read More
