About

93

Vivid straw-yellow with golden highlights. Ripe apple, pear and sweet spices on the captivating nose. Ripe but vibrant in the mouth, with noteworthy density and complexity to its almond paste, yellow apple, beeswax and lemony flavors. Finishes very long and suave with repeating floral notes and honeyed mouthfeel. Made with 70% late harvested Garganega and 30% Trebbiano di Soave. For my money, this is the Soave of the 2017 vintage. Well done.

Fascinating aromas of straw, dried mangoes and pears with hints of cooked apples, following through to a medium body, driven acidity and a fresh finish. Multidimensional. Drink now. Screw cap.

Product Description:

The minerality, which is the distinctive characteristic of this cru, gives this wine great elegance. An outstanding olfactory complexity of mature exotic fruit and yellow citrus fruits. On the palate it has good freshness with a long finish of sweet almond and vanilla. Thanks to its structure this wine has a good aging potential. Perfect with shellfish and fish dishes as red tuna or sea bass. Ideal served with quiche, seafood risotto and with meat roast. - Winery
