Soave Wine: unmistakable enological personality
The Soave DOC represents the most significant appellation within the DOC’s wine scene in Veneto.
Soave wine is produced in the eastern part of the hill arc 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, with particular reference to the volcanic origin that differentiates it from the others surrounding historical areas, Bardolino and Valpolicella.
A tufaceous soil of volcanic origin for Soave wine
There is in fact an indissoluble link that connect 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: the local Garganega and the Trebbiano di Soave. A long interaction which is confirmed by the prehistorical fossil evidence present in the territory.
The unique oenological personality of the DOC that we produce – Soave Classico and Soave – also lies at the same time in the dialogue established between the two types of grapes.
Trebbiano (that can reach 20%) adds lavor and vivacity to the density and structure typical of Garganega. The latter is also characterized by an almond and white flowe scent and an hard skin, intense yellow (almost red) color when ripe, in October.
Traditional vineyards of Soave in FAO's GIAHS program
In 2018 FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization on the United Nations) approved the “Traditional Soave Vineyards” within the GIAHS program: Globally Important Agricultural Heritage Systems.
Thanks to this important recognition, Soave becomes the first Italian wine-growing system enrolled in the program and the 53rd recognized world site.
