The best Soave wines come from the small Classico zone, where volcanic soils produce graceful whites such as this one.
What You Need To Know
Italy’s Soave region churned out a lot of ho-hum white wines back in the 1970s, most of which came from big industrial producers. But when made in small quantities from low-yielding vineyards in Soave’s original Classico zone, as with this example from Dama del Rovere, Soave is downright delicious—a crisp, food-loving white with silky citrus flavors and a light almondy edge. Dama del Rovere is a small winery founded in 2003 by Massimo and Davide Prà. Drawing on old family vineyards, the brothers have become two of the brightest young stars in the Soave Classico district. While most Soaves are made from a blend of the Garganega and (humbler) Trebbiano varieties, the Pràs use only Garganega for this bottling, which comes from 10 acres of vines in the hilly Tremenalto subzone.
