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. 
For more information on Soave, its history and production, please see Soave.

  • Giacomo Montresor Garganega Soave Classico Castello di Soave 2008


    A typically mute bouquet of lemon with a similarly soft, muted and neutral flavor upon entry. A tiny bit harsh on the palate, otherwise a sound Soave of little pretense. Recommended for parties Read More

  • Pieropan Calvarino Soave Classico 2006


    Soave is the wine and Pieropan is the master. This over-the-top product just shows what craftsmanship can achieve; here, the neutral but appealing mineral highlights are so smooth and thirst quenching it is like drinking slightly infused spring water from some hidden source high in the mountains. The closest profile on the nose that I can conj... Read More

    Wine review by Philip

  • Cantina di Monteforte Soave Classico Superiore DOCG 2007


    An instant almond rush on nose. In mouth, citrus fruit then distinctly floral right at the back of an extremely deep palate. Oak ageing gives a toasted nutty finish, ending with a refreshing touch of bitterness. Read More

  • Prá Soave Classico 2008


    I matched the soave with my garden fresh tomato mozzarella basil salad, and my linguini and clam sauce. I thought it was perfect. With hints of citrus, and melon to the palate, and aromas of grass, and the seashore. 2008 Pra Soave put out a wonderful wine for the price. I paid $17.99 plus tax on Long Island NY. Read More
