|Region||Italy, Veneto, Soave Classico|
Brilliant straw yellow colour with greenish hints. The delicate nose is reminiscent of almond blossoms and marzipan. Good depth of fruit on the palate, nicely balanced by a zingy acidity that enhances its long length. It makes an excellent partner for soups, starters, especially vegetable based such as asparagus, peas, courgette, egg-based dishes or seafood and fresh water fish dishes. It is an excellent aperitif, especially when served with simple canapés.
The 2021 Soave Classico lifts from the glass with an intense burst of sour citrus, crushed rocks, sea spray and sour melon. Its medium-weight textures wash across the palate with prominence, nicely contrasted by a reverberation of sweet and sour green citrus and zesty acidity. Granny Smith apples and exotic inner florals cascade throughout the finale, as the 2021 tapers off with unexpected length. Wait, this is an "entry-level" Soave Classico? Bravo.
This vivacious white dances on the palate, with a lively, zesty edge to the appealing flavors of crunchy pear, blood orange, stony mineral and almond blossom. Garganega and Trebbiano. Drink now through 2025. 41,000 cases made, 4,000 cases imported.
