Soave Classico Garganega 2020

Delectable Wine
9.0

The 2020 Soave Classico is remarkably pretty, perfumed and refined, with crushed apple and chamomile complemented by dusty florals. It finds a balanced middle ground between succulent ripe fruits and zesty acids, as its silken textures soothe the palate. A flourish of salty minerals and sweet florals seals the deal, as the 2020 tapers off long yet fresh. This is a lovely entry-level Soave. Well done. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Monte Grande Soave Classico Garganega 2019

Nice wine. Definitely a clear cut above your “typical” soave. Would be nice to try with some age. — 21 days ago

Pieropan

Classico Soave Garganega 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2020 Soave Classico wafts up with enticing notes of kiwi and sour melon contrasted by savory herbs. It’s deeply textural and round in feel, with a tart interplay of lemon and lime that’s nicely offset by a pleasant inner sweetness. There’s wonderful harmony here, as the 2020 tapers off with green botanicals and a flourish of minerality. This “entry-level” Soave Classico from Pieropan punches well above its price point. Since Pieropan makes three different bottlings, one from each tank, of their Soave, I thought it prudent to add the lot number for reference. (Lot# 26.10.21) (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Roccolo Grassi

La Broia Soave Garganega 2017

This is one of those bottles that you buy for the table and then just end up keeping it next to you all night. Creamy and soft, with butter and lemon in abundance and nice green fruit acid to complete it. I didn’t share a drop of this. — a month ago

'Vin Soave' Soave Classico Garganega 2020

Delectable Wine
8.9

The 2020 Vin Soave shows lemon oils, yellow flowers and crushed rocks in its very pretty and lifted bouquet. This is round in feel with piercing minerals and juicy acids to balance. It’s salty and floral while leaving hints of saline-tinged lime through the long finish. This is very nice for the price point. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Monte Carbonare Soave Classico Garganega 2019

Delectable Wine
9.2

The 2019 Soave Classico Monte Carbonare pulls you close with a nuanced mix of spring flowers, ginger and crushed green apple. It soothes the palate through silky textures and a pleasant inner sweetness, with ripe pit fruits and hints of melon motivated by brisk acidity. Nothing is out of place in this elegant and jovial Soave, as it tapers off lightly structured and buzzes with residual tension. While highly enjoyable today, the Monte Carbonare will excel through medium-term cellaring. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

La Cappuccina

Soave Garganega 2020

Delectable Wine
8.9

The 2020 Soave is subtle and delicate in the glass with dusty yellow florals and hints of peach skins. It washes across the palate, soft and round, with a lovely mineral and acid balance. This leaves a glycerol coating of fruit concentration, yet still finishes remarkably fresh. While not the last note on depth, the 2020 is really quite lovely. (Eric Guido, Vinous, April 2022)

Vigneto du Lot Soave Classico Garganega 2018

Top-notch Soave, complex and flavorful. This is a rich and bold white wine, so it will not be good for those looking for an unobtrusive Soave. Intense white fruit flavors, filled with cream and multiple fruits. Distinct lemon flavors throughout. — 23 days ago
