Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
A refreshing yet rich dry white with flavours of peach, apple and citrus with the characteristic notes of almond blossom typical of top quality Soave.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 3 years
Susy Atkins - Stella, Sunday Telegraph 14/04/2013
Of the 2011 vintage, Susy Atkins said: "Not as bone dry as some Italian whites, this tastes of ripe pears with a herby note and lemon-fresh finish."
Anthony Rose - The Independent Magazine 11/05/2013
Of the 2011 vintage, Anthony Rose said: "Unusually good soave for the price, an intense dry Italian white with ripe peachy scents and delicious apricoty fruit - gluggily juicy and moreishly dry."
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.
The vineyards are situated in the Soave Classico zone, in the Veneto in North East Italy.

Can drink this wine on it's own or delicious with a meal. Can't buy the wine in store, we have to buy by the case.

Yes, this is a good one. Full, rich, good colour and a pleasing, warming flavour. Not easy to get in store so when you see it, stock up. Prone to the odd bad bottle - almost one in every case on average - but Tesco's no quibble money-back guarantee overcomes that problem. Great for everyday drinking, and equally acceptable for friends at supper time.
