Soave or Garganega wines

A selection of wines made with the Soave grape variety known as Garganega.

Soave is often thought of as being the grape variety but Garganega is the actual grape used in Soave wines. Garganega is difficult to say, not very nice to say and would be something that would not be memorable to drinkers. It's become normal in Italian wines to call the wines a different name than the grape vartiety in some cases. You can see this at work when a wine is called something like Garganega/Pinot Grigio which is a blend of these two grapes and they can come from anywhere in Italy as long as they are IGT or similar quality. Soave however must come from the Veneto region and be of a different quality grade such as DOC or DOCG.

Soave is made in the north of Italy in the Veneto region. It produces dry white wines with excellent acidity but some wines such as Soave Recioto are sweet wines made to be drunk with dessert or cheese.
