Soave zoning ends on the label: green light for the 33 Additional Geographical Units

The Consortium started the project in 2000 and the wineries of the famous Venetian white upgraded individual areas

The zoning of Soave has been completed, and soon the indications will be put on wine labels, including the 33 Additional Geographic Units for the famous Venetian white wine’s production regulations. Once the Wine Committee of the Ministry of Agricultural Policies will give the definitive approval of the modifications to the specification, the Geographic Units will be able to indicate in a better way and more precisely, as wine fans all over the world have been asking for, where the different expressions of the territory in the bottle originate. The names of the areas that the individual companies and the Consortium historically have promoted for their particular ability to produce wines that fully characterize the climate and soil conditions where they grow, include: Castelcerino, Colombara Froscà, Fittà, Foscarino, Volpare, Tremenalto, Carbonare, Tent, Corte Durlo, Rugate, Croce, Costalunga, Coste, Zoppega, Menini, Monte Grande, Ca' del Vento, Castellaro, Pressoni, Broia, Brognoligo, Costalta, Paradise, Costeggiola, Casarsa, Monte di Colognola, Campagnola, Pigno, Duel, Sengialta, Ponsarà, and Roncà - Monte Calvarina. The Tutela Consorzio (protection consortium) started the project in 2000 through the publication, “Vigne del Soave” (Soave vineyards) which due to precise zoning, permitted not only the identification of different soils but also of altitudes, slopes, the incidence of the Veronese pergola on the Guyot and other data that allowed the creation of the geographical units of Soave.

Less than 40% of the entire vineyard in the appellation has been promoted through the crus, and exclusively in the hilly areas. Winemaking will have to take place separately from the other wines the company produces, guaranteeing both traceability and limited production, thereby securing a solid recognition on the market. The additional geographical units are distributed throughout the Soave area: 29 in the classic area, 2 in the dark soils of the Val d’Alpone and 3 in the calcareous soils of the valleys to the west.

“The approval of the geographic units is another big step forward for our denomination, which strong point has always been its communication towards the consumer, characterized by the geographic locations on the label”, said Aldo Lorenzoni, director of the Soave Consortium. “Now it is easier and easier for us to talk about what makes us unique, about our solid identity that we emphasized during Soave Stories, the event that had great media appeal because of the topics discussed. And, now we will be able to propose them abroad, on the stages that await us in the month of June of our promotional tour in New York, Tokyo and London”.
