      All about garganega

      What is garganega?

      Garganega is an Italian white grape that features in Soave, which is a popular white wine from the Veneto region of Italy. You may have tasted garganega wine without actually knowing that this exotic variety of grapes is present in it. Garganega is present in almost 70% of all white wines originating from Veneto in Northern Italy.

      Popular types of garganega wine

      Garganega white wines are light to medium-bodied wines with wonderful aromas of melon, peach, tangerine, almonds and hints of herbs like marjoram. As you sip this white wine, peach and melon frame the flavors with layers of zestier citrus and almond notes featuring in between. Aged garganega wines develop a rich texture with a nutty flavor.

      Garganega is the key ingredient in one of Italy's most famous wines ― soave garganega, bursting with flavors of peach, honeydew, citrus, and herbs with a subtle hint of saltiness. If you're looking for an Italian white wine with a balanced blend of different flavors, try soave aged for at least five years. The wonderful flavors of marmalade, honey, fennel seeds and citrus lemon in an aged Soave pack a delightful punch.

      Garganega also features prominently in other styles of Italian white wines, including sparkling and sweeter varieties. Recioto di Soave is a popular sweet white wine featuring delectable flavors of smooth apricots, tropical papaya and mango, making it a great option for a dessert wine.

      Soave food pairing

      Soave and other garganega-based white wines pair well with Italian seafood and grilled poultry. Think Italian classics such as clams and gnocchi, scallops and risotto and more. Consider using citrus-based sauces with fresh herbs to elevate the green notes of this wine.
