About

91

"Dark golden-tinged yellow. Hints of caramel and vanilla on the nose and palate, but the ripe fruit and herbal aromas and flavors emerge anyway in all their precision and freshness. Finishes long with a delicate spicy, honeyed touch and Garganega-typical pomaceous orchard fruit notes. Well done, this is a lovely Soave made from 90% Garganega and 10% Trebbiano di Soave grown in a real grand cru area for the Garganega grape, the volcanic soils of the Monte Foscarino cru. Even better, this is a rare example of very judiciously oaked Soave (this spent about seven months in used barriques and tonneaux), so that the oak doesn’t completely overwhelm the delicate Garganega- and Trebbiano di Soave-derived aromas and flavors."

Product Description:

"A soave classico cru, straw-yellow with golden highlights; intense fruity bouquet laced with a hint of honey, scents of vanilla, dried fruit and marked mineral aroma; full-bodied, rich and smooth on the palate." - Winery
