The climate in Soave Classico is influenced by the Mediterranean’s warm temperatures but it has less humidity than the coast due to its hilly position. This provides a long growing season, allowing the grapes to ripen slowly to full maturity. Soave Classico’s volcanic soil imparts a floral aroma and a discernible character on the palate.
Although the winery is modern, intervention during winemaking is kept to a minimum. Grapes are picked fully ripe and after a short maceration and gentle pressing the must is left to settle before a temperature-controlled fermentation and spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Foscarino is selected from old vines grown on the top of Monte Foscarino. Wine aged seven months in old barrique and bottled with a minimum of fining and filtration, preserving both aromatic intensity and natural balance.
Lovely, fresh wine with intense yellow color. On the nose there is aroma of sweet field flowers such as chamomile, iris and herbs. Large and round on the palate with a spicy notes and a big, nutty finish. Lovely balance with fruit and acidity.
