undefined, null

Flourishing in the rolling vineyards surrounding the medieval village of Soave in the Veneto region, Garganega is one of Italy’s classic white varieties and is dominant in the wine of the region, aptly known as, Soave. By law it makes up 70-100% of the blend with the remainder traditionally finished off by Trebbiano di Soave for its crispness. More recently and controversially, Chardonnay has been allowed in the blend to create softer Soave, but only up to 5% in Soave Classico.

Tasting Notes for Garganega

Garganega is a dry white wine. The best versions are steely and delicate with yellow peach, melon, almond, Herbs de Provence and lime zest flavors and aromas. Its simpler versions can offer great values and make wonderful quaffers.

Sommelier Secrets for Garganega

The best Soave wines, elegant and vibrant, come from the Soave Classico zone, in the center of Soave, where the hills are made of decomposed volcanic and granitic soils. If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris, try Graganega for something a little different.
