Soave is one of the most attractive names imaginable for a wine. Whatever the source of the name, the wine itself has been praised for centuries.
In more recent times, Soave was one of the favorite wines of poet Gabriele D’Annunzio, who once sipped some Soave and observed: "It is the wine of youth and love so that it’s not for me, since I am now loaded down with years and was ever a discreet lover. But I drink it in homage to the past. If it can’t restore me to the age of twenty, it can at least reawaken memories of that time".
