Soave DOC

The grapes for this wine are pure Garganega as tradition dictates from the vineyards surround the original Corte Giacobbe estate in the hilly area of Roncà, the eastern side of the Soave appellation. The soil is limestone-based, rich in basalt, and in gray and black tuff of marine origin. The wine macerates for about twenty-four hours and then spends three months in stainless steel vats, with bâtonnage (stirring) on its noble lees twice a week. It then spends a couple of months in bottle. The wine shows fragrant fruit and floral aromas on a crisp palate.
