To this day, I feel that the wines of Soave are so criminally under-appreciated; when done well, they can be such wonderfully expressive conduits of the land from which they were grown.
In much the same manner as Riesling, a well-crafted Garganega can speak to that sense of somewhereness to a degree that very few other grape varieties are capable of.
With this in mind, a little while back we sat down with Diego Corradi of esteemed Veneto house Prà to talk about just why their Soave wines are so highly regarded amongst those of us who enjoy a whole load of terroir in their glass.
This week we go through an in-depth tasting of three of their different levels of Soave, and it was a real learning experience for me… for sure.
