Soave, Veneto, Italy

$23.75 / each

Description:

Made of 100% Garganega, this Soave Classico was grown at a very high elevation on volcanic soils, which really sets it apart from the sea of uneventful Soave out there. Sourced from the hillside planting of Tremenalto in the zone of Monteforte d'Alpone, this is bright, full of character and very expressive, delivering pretty apricot and white peach flavors. This was fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in stainless steel.
