THE VARIETY

Garganega

 Garganega, from the Veneto region in Italy, is closely associated with the delicate wines of Soave (of which Garganega makes up a minimum of 70% of the wine.)  Garganega is an expressive variety, reflecting the terroir upon which it's grown; cooler climates see apples, gunflint and generous acidity. Warmer climes see more stone fruit and honey, as well as some spice. Soave and other Garganega-based wines pair with mussels, scallops, lobster, a variety of fish, and grilled poultry. Consider using a herbal base, like chives in butter, to highlight the green notes in the wine.

THE REGION

Soave

A quaint medieval town located in the northern region of Veneto, Italy. Most famous for its production of a unique dry white wine style made from Garganega grapes. The Soave wines tend to be acidic, lean and crisp. The best Garganega vineyards are located on the rolling hills above the village of Soave. Younger wines tend to be taste of honeydew and white peach while older vintages have notes of candied fennel, honey and preserved lemon. Pairs very well with shellfish, chicken and tofu.
