Soave wine speaks to explain Soave wine and what is Soave wine and the manufacture and history of such.
This wine is a dry white wine produced in the Italian region northeast of Verona. The wine is indeed a varietal with the Garganega grape being the principle variety.
There are 41 Italian Denominaziones di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) designated wines of which it is one.
This grape is grown in the municipalities of Soave, Monteforte d'Alpone, San Martino Buon Albergo, Lavagno, Mezzane, Caldiero, Colognola, Illasi, Cazzano, Roncà, Montecchia and San Giovanni Ilarione.
The wine is meant to be enjoyed within two years of bottling and is of good value not being too expensive and its appeal is its fresh and pleasant taste. It is fermented in stainless steel drums which allows the natural and fruit like flavours to flourish.
If the wine is labelled as Classico Soave the wine has been made from grapes grown in the areas of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone which are the oldest producing zones.
The production zone is limited to the hillside sites already noted in the regulations for the production of Recioto di Soave DOCG. there are also new regulations for planting: new vineyards must be trained using Espalier systems with at least 4000 vine per hectare.
For those vines planted before 2002, the Espalier system, Pergola Incliante and Pergoletta Veronese are allowed. Soave DOCG may be released on to the market only after 1 September of the year following the harvest and after bottle aging of at least three month so as to emphasize characteristic of maturity and complexity. wines aged a minimum of two years may be labelled as "Riserva".
