Venice’s region is Italy’s leader in the production and commerce of classified wine. Throughout the region the recent emphasis is on white wines. Soave is arguably the most famous white-wine DOC in Italy. Granted DOC status in 1968, the title covers wines made from Garganega grapes grown on the hillsides east of Verona. A dry, crisp, fruity white wine, Soave’s naturally refreshing appeal led it to phenomenal popularity in the second half of the 20th century.
The grapes are pressed cool and the must is immediately removed from the skins to avoid acquiring their rust-red color. After this soft-pressing the must is left to ferment for about 15-20 days at a low temperature between 60-62° F in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then stored at 63-65° F under a blanket of inert gas in special stainless-steel tanks until bottling.
