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.

  • Ca' Rugate Soave Classico San Michele 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Very pleasant, uncomplicated wine. Somewhat fruity bouquet. Fruit emerges as the taste moves throughout the palate. Certainly, citrus notes, but not with a lot of acid, which surprises me, a tad. US$10.99 at Total Wines. Read More

  • Cantina del Castello Soave Classico Castello 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Very fruity on the nose with layers of banana, white peach, grapefruit and bay leaf. Bright with a touch of dissolved CO2 on the palate. Very bright acids balanced by some simple fresh fruits. Banana and strawberry up front, then peach and nectarine. Very easy and fresh with a light, crisp structure. 84pts Read More

  • Rocca Sveva Soave Classico D.O.C 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Lime leaf, white fruit and white flowers come out on the bright nose. Pronounced acids on the palate, remaining well-balanced with crisp, transparent fruit on the mid-palate. Though this does turn a bit sticky on the back end, the pronounced acids help cleanse the palate on the modest finish. 86pts Read More

  • Tenuta Sant'Antonio Soave Classico 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very floral and very terpene on the nose with some citron peel in a long, fresh style with lemon verbena top notes. Open and broad in the mouth with a soft fruity edge and a core of bright bitter apple fruits that extend onto the moderate finish. 87pts Read More

  • Coffele Soave Classico Superior 2010

    Snoothrank:

    White flowers and chalky minerals on the nose with a dry smell that retains some yeasty edges. Dry, strict and refreshing on the palate with bright orchard fruits framed with bracing notes of mineral and apple skins. Very precise and linear in the mouth. 87pts Read More

  • Cantina del Castello Soave Classico Pressoni 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Mineral on the nose with a touch of banana peel, some orchard fruits, but mostly mineral. Crisp on the palate with nice sapid, salty minerality balanced against gentle peach fruit. Really very finely balanced and focused, if a touch simple, though with great length and a fine salinity on the finale. 88pts Read More

  • Coffele Soave Classico Alzari 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with earthy tones under dried fruit skin notes. A silken entry with a really gentle and fine depth of citrus accented by ripe orchard fruits. A fine, firm mid-palate is rich with bright, pithy lemony citrus fruit tones that leads to an elegant finish. 89pts Read More

  • Coffele Soave Classico Superiore 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Acacia and balsam tones dominate the aromatic nose with notes of lemon oil, slate and mineral emerging with time. Round and fairly opulent with nice apple fruit supported by nicely integrated acids. This has a fresh but tactile finish with decent length for a wine that turns surprisingly elegant while remaining fairly rich. 89pts Read More
