Gambellara is a small wine region on the hillier eastern edge of the more famous Soave region in the Veneto. Gambellara wines are also produced from the same Garganega grape. What makes Gambellara different is the terroir. The volcanic soils of Gambellara are rich with black basalt, unlike Soave, which creates texturally complex wines with brighter tones and stony minerality compared to the softer, more round Soave wines. The Garganega grape delivers those classic flavors and aromas of citrus flowers and pears but those volcanic soils take the wine to a more serious level.
