Summary: Soave is a small commune in Veneto, part of the province of Verona. The region’s high altitude and cool climate create an elegant expression of Soave, imparted with mineral complexity by the stony soil. Soave is most commonly described as a dry white made from the Gargenega variety. This wine is from the Classico designation: indicating wines produced in the heartland of the Soave region around the sloping vineyards of Verona.
Winemaking: Sourced from vineyards in the hills of the classico area northe east of Verona. A soft pressing followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature. Fermented in stainless steel with temperature control before maturation on lees for six months to build texture and complexity.
2020 Vintage: Winter was unusually dry and warm in the region. These conditions accelerated the grapes and around April, early-ripening varieties began budding. The cold returned with lots of rain and heavy snow in the mountains. This instability lasted through May, which saw low temperatures. This slowed the growth cycle down and flowering took place in early June. July saw scorching temperatures but luckily, temperatures dropped overnight. Overall, ripening went well, but quantities were down about 20%.
Tasting Note: Pale yellow in colour with a vital fruity aroma. This is vibrant with stonefruit and citrus, with hints of almond, marzipan and spice. The palate rewards with an unctuous and filling mouthfeel with a slightly salty minerality. It’s full of bright fruit flavours and balanced by fine acidity ensuring a good match for a seafood risotto.
