DOC for dry white wine in the border area between the two regions of Lombardy and Veneto in Italy. It is named after the plain of the same name, a glacial basin at the south end of Lake Garda (Lago di Garda), which stretches from the province of Brescia (Lombardy) across to the province of Verona (Veneto). The lake has a positive effect in regulating the climate. The zone has a total vineyard area of around 700 hectares, and includes the communes of Desenzano del Garda, Pozzolengo and Sirmione (Brescia), as well as Peschiera del Garda (Verona). The wine has a yellow-straw colour with greenish tinges, and it very similar to Soave. It is made from Trebbiano di Lugana = Trebbiano di Soave (90-100%), as well as optionally from other permitted white varieties (up to 10%). If it has a minimum alcohol level of 12% vol it may be called a Superiore. A Spumante is also produced.
