This time we keep the introduction to our BEST OF Soave particularly short and refer you to the current article by Raffaella Usai here in the magazine for more in-depth information
Consorzio di Tutela Soave

Just this much: the qualities of Soave seem to be steadily increasing. It is noticeable that above all the number of lean, rather low-alcohol but nevertheless expressive wines is increasing. In the past, the best Soave wines were usually also the more powerful ones, while those with a lower alcohol content were usually also simpler. Today, such a distinction would no longer be possible. The fact that this change towards more finesse-rich and lighter wines is taking place so clearly despite climate change is a convincing indication of the dynamism of the region and the quality consciousness of its producers.

We have tasted a good 100 wines for this BEST OF in recent weeks. As always, we present the best ones here and in a handy PDF presentation. But even among the simpler Soaves there are plenty of recommendable, drinkable wines at very enjoyable prices that we would also like to recommend to you. Links to all the wines with detailed tasting notes as well as their producers can be found by clicking on the headings.
