Soave Superiore, produced in the hilly area of Soave, obtained the D.O.C.G. designation in 2001. Such a highquality wine is the result of a perfect balance of the area of cultivation, controlled yield in the field and accurate preservation prior to bottling in the winery.
Soave Superiore, becoming Soave Superiore classico when it is produced in the area defined as "classica", can only be sold after a refining period of at least three months in the bottle, which safeguards the characteristics of the mature and complex wine.
The straw yellow colour of Soave Superiore D.O.C.G. is more intense than the Soave D.O.C., although it keeps the typical brightness of a young wine. It is characterised by a floral, more intense bouquet and a full and subtly bitter taste.
The D.O.C.G. designation also includes Soave Superiore riserva and Soave Superiore classico riserva. For the riserva, the refining period requires at least two years, three months of which must be in the bottles. Its colour is also an intense straw yellow, while its flavour is well-rounded, intense and it has a slightly bitter aftertaste.
The Strada del Vino (Wine Road) follows the aromas of these wines passing through areas of natural beauty, where the marks of art and history are to be found along the fascinating spots on the itinerary.
