    Winemaker Notes

    This 100% garganega is grown 150 meters above sea level in the volcanic hills outside Verona. It displays its fine character when first poured through brilliant pale straw yellow and fresh and delicate scents including vine flowers and elderberry. Its taste is dry and tangy with hints of green apple. It pairs well with many foods including antipasti, rice dishes, baked fish, grilled white meats and vegetable soups.

    The Borgias on SHOWTIME
    Oscar-winning actor Jeremy Irons will star in the epic drama series as Rodrigo Borgia, the cunning, manipulative patriarch of The Borgia family who ascends to the highest circles of power within Renaissance-era Italy.

    The Borgias will be a complex, unvarnished portrait of one of history's most intriguing and infamous dynastic families. The series begins as the family's patriarch Rodrigo (Jeremy Irons) becomes Pope, propelling him, his two Machiavellian sons, Cesare and Juan, and his scandalously beautiful daughter, Lucrezia, to become the most powerful and influential family of the Italian Renaissance.

    About the Label Design
    The Borgias wine label design combines the elements of tradition, simplicity and elegance. Created by emerging graphic designer Elliot Cohen, the inspiration for the labels was the Borgia family crest. The bull symbolized the power of the Borgia family in Italy.

    Borgias Winery Image
    Borgias wines are made by Monte del Fra, a family-operated winery comprised of 118 hectares of property situated in the beautiful hills of Lake Garda, near the historic center of Verona. Exclusively owned and operated by the Bonomo family since 1958, the winery is guided by the synergy between terroir and indigenous grapes. It follows that the Bonomo family produces the traditional varietals and blends from the Verona region of Veneto, including white wines like Custoza, Garganega, Lugana and Soave and red wines like Bardolino, Corvina, Valpolicella Classico, Ripasso and Amarone.

    The Bonomo family's passion for winemaking was born in the countryside. Its members' firm conviction is that great wine can only be created in the vineyard.

    Soave Wine

    Veneto, Italy

    View all products

    Among Italy’s classic whites capable of great potential, Soave is named after the medieval village and surrounding hillsides from whence it comes. The original, historical Soave zone, delimited back in 1927, covers the eastern, volcanic hillsides of today's general Soave zone and is called Soave Classico.

    Garganega, the indigenous grape responsible for great Soave, produces medium bodied white wines with fine acidity. Typical in the best Soaves are lively flowery and fresh herbal aromas and flavors such as orange zest, peach, melon and marjoram. The best can take some age and in so doing, develop notes of chamomile, marmalade and honey.

    By the 1960s and 70s, Soave was enjoying such a glorious global reputation, that its demand forced growers to push beyond the zone's original borders. Expansion led west out of the hills and onto the alluvial plain of the Adige River. This, coupled with an increase in yields and allowance of additional varieties such as Trebbiano, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, met demand but created a softer, fruit-forward, everyday Soave. Today the broader region can be the source of charming and value driven whites. But those labeled as Soave Classico or in rare cases, as Soave Colli Scaligeri (nearby hillside vineyards abutting the Classico zone), will be the best quality and age-worthy Soaves. These are often 100% Garganega.

    One of Italy’s classic white varieties, Garganega flourishes in the rolling vineyards surrounding the medieval village of Soave and is the dominant variety in the wine from 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. Somm Secret—The best Soave wines, measurably 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.
