2009 Si Veneto Italia
people like it!
You probably haven't heard of Soave unless you grew up in Italy. That's because this region, located near Venice, produces white wines that Italians have been keeping on their own dinner tables for decades.
With some modern marketing and a bottle that looks primed to tickle your fancy, it's what's under the screw cap that really makes us say yes to this crisp and refreshing white. Made mostly with the native grape Garganega and rounded out with some Trebbiano, Si Soave is ideal for those last few weeks of summer when temperatures and humidity climb for the last time. Similar in style to a Pinot Grigio, wines from Soave have less of an acidic kick and come off smoother with flavors of apple, citrus and tropical fruit.
The 2008 Si Soave is a DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controlla) wine, meaning the grapes and winemaking process are held to a higher standard than their non-DOC counterparts. A wine above the rest? Bellisima! And if you love it as much as we do, stop by their booth at Wine Riot and say hello!
Drink liberally with an arrugula salad, Italian salumi or even a thin crust margarita pizza!
