White wine originating from the Soave region must be pressed from at least 70 % grapes of the Garganega variety. Addition of Trebbiano, Pinot Bianco and Chardonnay grapes is permitted. It is low in acidity and characterised by a velvety aroma. Due to its light flavour, the Soave with DOC status is very popular around the world.
The SOAVE DELLE VENEZIE DOC includes as much as 85 % Garganega grapes, 10 % Trebbiano di Soave and 5 % Chardonnay – the latter gives it a subtly smoky note. It impresses with a clear nose and mild aroma, featuring subtle floral notes, white blossoms, a hint of apple and mild vegetal echoes. It is sleek and juicy on the palate, with an almost medium length and subtle fruitiness. Light floral notes and a hint of sweet almonds can be tasted in the background.
Thanks to its first-class composition, the SOAVE DELLE VENEZIE DOC goes very well with light dishes such as grilled seafood, delicate fish, and also tofu. It also harmonises equally well with foods that are more difficult to match, such as asparagus and lentils.
The picturesque village of Soave is located between Verona and Vicenza. With its Middle Ages city wall, including 24 towers, and the vineyards in the surrounding hills, time seems to stand still here. The viticulture areas of the Veneto region are highly respected and are known for their dry white wines.
