Tasting Notes

This is a stunning Soave from the top of the Soave quality tree - made from grapes gown in vineyards classified as classico.

Made from the Garganega grape, this is deliciously fresh and ripe with orange blossom aromas and peach flavours.

There's a hint of almonds too.

A fantastic aperitif, great with light dishes too.

Storage Instructions

This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “There is the merest whisper of oak used in the production to this wine which gives it a little more depth and creaminess than many Soaves.”

Matthew Jukes - Weekend, Daily Mail 24/05/2014

Of the 2012 vintage, Matthew Jukes said: “The Garganega grape can grow wildly, hence too many washed –out soaves. But this one delivery delicate lemon and apple fruit with a tickle of smoky, salty, spice.”

Background

History

The Cantina di Monteforte co-op is situated in the eastern part of Soave Classico and Soave. They have 1,200 hectares in total, part in Soave Classico and part outside the Classico zone, with some of the best vineyards in Soave Classico. Sixty per cent of their vineyards are on the hills, facing south and southeast, which gives wines that are riper and fuller than most others produced in Soave. The co-op has 600 members and harvests about 20,000 tonnes of grapes a year. Cool summer breezes blowing down the Alpone valley from the foothills of the Dolomites to the north give warm days and cool nights, which helps with the accumulation of aromatic characters in the grapes. Matt Thomson works with Gaetano Tobin at the Cantina to produce these wines.
