Soave for the suave. Soave is located to the east of Verona and has a reputation as one of those old fashioned wines that used to be popular. However, this wine comes from an extremely eco-friendly young winery to the west of Verona and although it is made from the same grape used in Soave, it is a much more sophisticated beast. It has a rich creaminess from ageing on the lees (dead yeast) and a gorgeous apple, pear and pineapple flavour. Time to get that risotto pan out...
Between Custoza and Bardolino, lies the territory of Sommacampagna. This historical area with its sweet and gently rolling Morenic hills form the backdrop to the Ronca winery, whose vineyards are gently caressed by the mild breezes coming from the nearby Garda Lake and characterised by the strong minerality of the Morenic hills. The Ronca family cultivate their estate grown grapes for the production of DOC wines typical for the Garda territory, such as, Custoza, Bardolino, Chiaretto, as well as the IGT wines Garganega, Corvina and Spumante Champenoise method. The Garganega grapes are subjected to a soft, slow and progressive pressing. Cold clarification takes place with static settling, followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature in steel tanks with selected wine yeasts.The wine is kept on its own yeasts for about 4 months in steel tanks and will be ready for drinking after a couple of months of ageing in bottle.
