Regional Soave

Wine Glass White.jpg
Serve in a White Wine Glass
Named for the eponymous town not far from Verona in Italy's Veneto region, Soave is one of Italy's best-known and distinctive white wines. Soave is produced primarily from the Garganega grape. The wines offer aromas of honeydew melon, pear and yellow flowers. Medium-bodied, the wines are generally unoaked, although a few artisan producers do age their wines in oak, to add texture and spiciness.

The Soave Classico zone is made up of volcanic soils, which add minerality and complexity to the wines from the best vineyards.

The aging potential range from drink early styles (2-3 years after the vintage) to fifteen to twenty years for a few special versions form older vineyards.

Soave pairs beautifully with lighter seafood, such as branzino (a local fish), vegetable risotto, lighter chicken presentations as well as Thai and Asian cuisine.
