Soave

DOC area for white wine in the west of the Italian region of Veneto. The name Soave allegedly goes back to the Swabians who immigrated from the north and settled here in the Middle Ages. However, it also means gentle or sweet and is often used to describe the character. To the east of Soave is the DOC area Gambellara with similar wine. The zone includes the municipalities of Caldiero, Cazzano di Tramigna, Colognola ai Colli, Illasi, Lavagno, Mezzane di Sotto, Montecchia di Crosara, Monteforte d'Alpone, Roncà, San Bonifacio, San Giovanni Ilarione, San Martino Buon Albergo and the eponymous Soave in the province of Verona.

The Classico area includes the municipalities of Monteforte d'Alpone and Soave. It lies on the often steep south and south-west slopes between the two villages at an altitude of 100 to 350 metres above sea level. The Colli Scaligeri subzone includes the municipalities of Caldiero, Cazzano di Tramigna, Colognola ai Colli, Illasi, Lavagno, Mezzane di Sotto, Montecchia di Crosara, Monteforte d'Alpone, Roncà, San Giovanni Ilarione, San Martino Buon Albergo and Soave.
