unmistakable enological personality
The Soave DOC represents the most significant appellation within the guaranteed origin wine scene in Veneto.
It is produced in the eastern part of the hill arch complex of the province of Verona: a territory which has been associated – since the early 20th century – to a specific identity linked to the origin of the soil, particularly referring to the volcanic origin which differentiates it from the other surrounding historical areas, Bardolino and Valpolicella.
Tuffaceous soil by volcanic origin
There is in fact a permanent link that unifies the environment – characterized by mild and temperate climate, tuff like soil of volcanic origin with important calcareous outcrops – and the two vine varieties which produce the Soave DOC grapes: the local Garganega and the Trebbiano di Soave. A long interaction which is confirmed by the pre-historical fossil evidence that can be found in the territory.
The unique enological personality of the DOC that we produce under the GIANNITESSARI brand – Soave Classicowine and Soave – lies at the same time also in the dialogue established between the two types of grapes.
Trebbiano (that can reach 20%) adds richness and liveliness to the density and structure typical of Garganega. The latter is characterized also by an almond and white flowe scent, hard intense yellow (almost red) when ripe, in October.
