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 »

  • DV, Lynn and I managed to take a peek at Vessel this afternoon while cruising ... up some enticing Pieropan Soave from the most recent vintage.  I was told by the knowledgeable and clubbable attendant that the elder Pieropan passed away just recently, which is a milestone in Veneto winemaking, I would have to venture.  Nice suggestion.  I will...

  • Soave Classico Pieropan 2014


    The 2014 Pieropan Soave Classico at 5 years is amazingly sound and complex; the colour is medium yellow and the nose has elements of lemon and acidic white berries (gooseberry) with a hint of field mushroom. No ordinary Soave, this wine is spicy with a smooth, slightly neutral, light finish. A serious Soave indeed to last this long in the bott... Read More

    Light lemon-tangerine aromas with crisp melon notes and floral spice. Nicely spiced and quite zesty on the palate with bright acidity, melon and lemon fruit notes and a dry, dusty and oaky finish with strong notes of tart citrus and waxy, floral notes. Read More

  • I Stefanini Monte di Fice Soave Superiore Classico 2017


    Tart and fresh tropical fruit aromas of mango and melon with some golden berries and lemon and a touch of dried earth.
