“G” grape entries


A very productive variety of northern Italy. Sometimes too productive. Best known as the key component (70%, along with 30% of Trebbiano and Chardonnay) of the delicate white wine Soave. Soave Superiore is better as yields in other areas can spiral out of control thus producing flat and boring wines. Also grown in the regions of Friuli and Umbria, as well as found in the popular blend Gambellara. When given the proper treatment Garganega can produce light wines with hints of wild flowers, lemon curd and nuts.
