Soave Classico Monte Carbonare DOC

Made from 100% Garganega. The vineyards feature dark volcanic soil, reminiscent of coal (carbone in Italian) – hence the name Carbonare. The wine then ages 12 months in stainless steel and 6 months in bottle. Lively, deep yellow with brilliant green reflections; the bouquet shows gorgeous notes of Mediterranean citrus fruit with fresh nuances of mountain herbs and appealing, lush minerality.
