We visited the Coffele winery and cellar door in Soave. It’s set in a castle, as you do, and all the whites have a glint in their eye as if gesturing you to drink some more. Everything about this cobbled-street wine town is idyllic, and then some. Soave the region makes Soave the wine, which is the country’s classic and ubiquitous white wine, in much the same way as sauvignon blanc is for New Zealand. When Soave is at its best, it’s made with the grape varieties garganega and trebbiano, though chardonnay is also permitted in the blend. Wine touring here is so often performed in summer and based around red wine, but this does not compute. Touring Soave on a warm day proves there’s a better way.
