This SOAVE WIZARD WINE offered to the US WINE LOVERS by LO DUCA BROS. is entirely made of GARGANEGA GRAPE VARIETY (GARGANEGA 100%).
In fact, GARGANEGA is unique to the region of VENETO and is known to be cultivated there since the thirteenth century.
It – The Garganega Grape – gives Soave its structure and its characteristic, slightly almond like aroma.
The second grape variety planted in Veneto is the TREBBIANO DI SOAVE that IS NOT TREBBIANO TOSCANO.
It is interesting to know that TREBBIANO TOSCANO adds nothing to a wine but volume.
We know that the Italian law requires that any SOAVE blend include from 70 to 90 percent GARGANEGA and from 10 to 30 percent Trebbiano, but you have to check the blend percentage on the back labels as there are those more honored in the breach of law than the observance this seems to be read as an ideal rather than a regulation.
SOAVE WIZARD WINE pairs well:
- Cantaloupe with Salted Ricotta.
- Blue cheese on a bed of delicate greens.
- Tartare with a lump crab meat mixed in.
- Melon, prosciutto and cured ham.
Between the ultra-famous wines of Pieropan, ultra-expensive (Quintarelli) and ultra-obscure (Vitovska), there’s thankfully room for plenty of white wines of real character from many of Italy’s wine regions, Soave Wizard among them.
It’s also key to remember that wine need not be profound to be meaningful and memorable. This Soave is from a quality-conscious small producers that give lovely, floral aromas and fine balance.
The consortium of several estate wineries whose name is ‘ITALIANS’ produces both the ‘ROCK RIPASSO’, the SOAVE and the BARDOLINO wines.
