I’m sure many of you have already heard of Soave, but today I’m here to give you a quick insight into its origins and specifically into Graziano Prà’s production of this wine. Hopefully this will encourage you to try it out for yourselves during you stay in Venice!
The Soave Classico is a white wine named after the region it originates from, the small village of Soave, a few miles east of Verona. It is characterised by the predominant use of Garganega grapes.
In the 80s, Graziano Prà made it his ambition to create a unique Soave on his family estate at Monteforte D’Alpone, having inherited from his father and grandfather a deep understanding and appreciation of this volcanic area.
The Soave Classico Prà “Otto”, in memory of Graziano’s four-legged friend, is a young wine, with a fruity aroma and exceptionally fresh and zingy in taste, perfect for every occasion. We then have the Soave Prà “Monte Grande”, a personal favourite for many. It is known for the intensity and maturity of its taste, which is contrasted by a crisp, mineral flavour evoking the rich volcanic soil where the vines grow. To end, the great “Colle Sant’Antonio”, an elegant wine that pairs well with strong traditional foods such as “Venetian liver’”, “baccalà” or “sarde in saor”.
Palazzo San Luca has long been fond of Graziano Prà’s creations and is delighted to offer these wines to guests so they may enjoy the inherent flavours of the Veneto region.
