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.
