Soave is named after the namesake Venetian city, located in the territory that was invaded in 568 by King Teodorico and its Longobards, the Germanic people of the Swabians, the Suaves, a term which was Italianized in Soavi (and here it’s explained the origin of the name). The territory in which they settled was not alien to the wine-growing tradition, as testified by a 6th century epistle in which King Teodorico's minister speaks of the wine of this area, describing it as "soothing and full-bodied, endowed with jovial candidness and incredible sweetness". Therefore Soave, which in Italian means “sweet and soothing” is indeed the natural quality of this wine

"...transparent golden yellow colour. Aromas toast, apple, peach and white flowers. Expressive wine accompanied by refreshing acidity, minerality and citrus shades."
