Spring into Soave!
When you think of Italian white wine, Soave is not necessarily the first thing that comes to mind, but it is well worth considering for a number of reasons.
Soave (pronounced ‘swah-vay’) is an Italian white wine made of Gargenega grapes grown around the medieval village of Soave in Northern Italy, just outside Verona. Soave wine is known for its melon-and-orange-zest flavours as well as its ability to improve with age. The quality of Soave has improved in recent years, but the region is still considerably undervalued.
We are currently stocking the delicious Pra Soave Otto – fresh, flowery, with a lightly yeasty nose and a hint of almonds on the palate. It comes from the wonderful wine making brothers Sergio and Graziano Pra, regarded as world-class producers who have helped revitalized the region.
Try it with a goats’ cheese, basil and red roasted pepper salad or asparagus (just coming into season). It would work equally well with white fish sprinkled with lemon.
