Soave is one of the best known white wine regions in Italy, located in the Veneto province just outside of Verona. This is a wine that has existed in some capacity in the area for centuries, though sadly, by the the 20th century, if there was a jug full of Italian white wine, chances are it was Soave. 
But things have changed since then and quality control efforts have improved Soave production greatly. Soave was actually the first region to receive a DOC classification, in 1936. The principal grape is Garganega, which was then allowed to blended with Trebbiano Toscano (same as Ugni used for brandy) and Pinot Bianco, which produced a very thin, nearly flavorless wine. The restrictions have changed and those two grapes have been banned from the blend. It now consists of a minimum 70% Garganega, with an allowable maximum 30% Trebbiano di Soave (Verdicchio) and/or Chardonnay. 
Most of the vineyards are located on the hillsides, around the Medieval town of Soave with Read more »

  • I Stefanini Monte di Fice Soave Superiore Classico 2014


    Complex aromas are nutty and earthy on the nose with notes of oak and dried peach, apricot and lemon. Nicely spiced and wooded in the mouth with restrained citrus that brightens the palate alongside fruit notes of golden berries, fresh melon and green apple with a zesty, bold finish. Read More

  • I Stefanini Monte de Toni Soave Classico 2015


    Nutty and fresh in the glass with lemon notes and emollient hints of floral sweetness on the nose. This dances in the mouth with bright citrus, touches of pineapple and green apple fruit and a tart note towards the finish that plays against a hint of cream. Read More

  • I Stefanini Il Selese Soave 2015


    Lightly spiced aromas of pear, lychee and white blossom. Juicy and full on the palate with good acidity, this is nicely balanced with white peach opening the way for tart citrus and lemon merengue at the finish. Read More

  • Pieropan Soave Classico 2014


    Juicy aromas of pineapple and lemon with a bit of heat and spice. Medium-light bodied in the mouth, this is fairly simple but refreshing with notes of lemon and light melon, a hint of herb and a medium-short finish. This wine would pair excellently with a variety of delicate foods because it is unassuming and approachable while still having enou... Read More
