Soave Classico DOC

Made from 100% Garganega grown in Fitta, Castellaro and Tremenalto. The vineyards feature dark volcanic soil in Fitta and Temenalto and gravelly basalt in Castellaro, with very steep inclines. After harvest in late September, fermentation takes place. The wine then ages in stainless steel on its lees for five months. Straw yellow with green reflections and a fragrant nose with notes of apples, pear and white flowers with lovely citrus and mineral notes confirmed on a creamy, juicy palate sustained by excellent backbone and freshness and closing on a flavorful, satisfying finish.
