Soave

Soave (pronounced SWAH-vay) is a dry white wine from the Veneto region in northeast Italy, principally around the city of Verona. It's generally designed to be drunk a year or two after the vintage. It is a user-friendly white, which offers good value for money: a wine from which one expects neither complexity nor ageing potential but rather a clean fragrance and an appealing freshness and delicacy. Some producers, however, have worked on raising the general quality and offer some high-end and single-vineyard bottlings. Made from the Garganega and Trebbiano di soave, it is almost always vinified in stainless steel, a method which allows the wine's attractive floral and fruity notes to express themselves fully. It is also used to make a dessert wine, Recioto di Soave, made from partially dried grapes.
