Post image for ReMARKable Palate #250: The Wines of Soave

On today’s show I speak with Giovanni Ponchia, lead Enologist for the Soave Consortium. Soave is the most produced white wine in Italy, and hails from the Veneto region in Northeastern Italy. I speak with Giovanni about the Garganega grape, the chalky volcanic soil of the region, and what foods go well with Soave.
