Winemaker Notes

"Superclean white with mineral, apple and lightly toasted oak character follows through to a full-bodied palate, with ripe fruit and a long and luscious finish."

Tamellini, Italy
After growing grapes for others for four generations, brothers Gaetano and Pio Francesco Tamellini founded their winery in 1998 in order to introduce a truly noble alternative which hearkens back to a time before the vast sea of mediocre wine bearing the Soave DOC became ubiquitous in the market. Gaetano runs the farming side and Pio Francesco is the winemaker, and this is a labor of love. Their vineyards are in the heart of historical Soave near the city of Verona in an area called Costeggiola. The soils are contain limestone and old volcanic soils that are great for the native Garganega grape. Care is taken in the vineyard and in the cellar to be as natural as possible with the wines . . . cover crops, no herbacides or pesticides, copper and sulphur to fight mildew but that is about it . . . very much in line with our philosophy of do no harm. In the cellars, the emphasis is on purity of fruit and a sense of place. No makeup in the form of new oak is used.

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.
