Soave is the name, and suave are the characteristics of this area: soft, rolling hills, among which are set like precious gems of history, medieval manors and elegant Venetian villas, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves that have found an ideal home in these places since Greek times.
In the area east of Verona, the Soave area is made up of five valleys that lie among sunny hills: the Valle di Marcellise, Val di Mezzane, Val d’Illasi, Val Tramigna and Val d’Alpone. The latter is the easternmost and together with Soave forms the heart of the Soave Classico territory.
Wines produced in the Monteforte area, characterized by an east/southeast exposure, express the freshness and vibrancy of the morning sun, and are distinguished by an intense floral bouquet. The soil, of volcanic origin, has a basaltic and tuffaceous subsoil, called “tovo” which, thanks to its structure and richness in microelements, imparts and enhances freshness and minerality typical of our wines. In the part of Magnavacche and Costalta the soil is darker, with the presence of basaltic rock, of volcanic origin, while that of Castellaro, in Brognoligo, lighter is mostly clay.
