As you may have noticed, we have a thing about Soave, otherwise we wouldn't make it the subject of a BEST OF year after year.

Unfortunately, the area's good reputation has been permanently tarnished by the masses of banal little wines that have been spilling over the Alps to us for decades. In fact, Soave is still one of the most important white wine regions in Italy, even in terms of quality. The astonishingly characterful wines from the best, often steep vineyards with their dark soils of volcanic origin are initially underestimated in Germany perhaps also because of their generally low acidity and their basically rather soft character. Yet they display a complexity, depth and storability that can easily compete with the top wines of many other regions.

We tasted around 120 wines for this BEST OF, the best of which we also present, as always, in a handy PDF presentation. You can find links to all the wines tasted by clicking on the respective designations of origin (for technical reasons, the Spumante are assigned to their respective DO).
