Inama Vigneti di Foscarino Soave Classico 2018
Cellar for up to 5 years.
This Northern Italian white emerges from the basaltic lava soil of the old pergola vineyards from the eastern side of Monte Foscarino, the oldest white wine area in Northern Italy. A respectful, modern reinterpretation of the thousands of years of traditions of the Soave Classico, based on the delicate Garganega grape which is only capable of being produced from this region’s volcanic earth, this medium-bodied wine offers an intensely brilliant and rich golden straw-yellow colour, while its signature very well may be its complex flavours benefiting from minimally intrusive winemaking process and fermentation in used barriques.
Its tempting, lifted nose sweetly foreshadows the experience of honey, liquorice and hints of spice that proceed to dance on the palate with delectable aromas of the field flowers from the local region. These main notes are softly complemented by a savoury, mineral mix of stone fruit and citrus. This intermingling of complexly woven tastes enhances the medium-full, creamy palate which is balanced by a sophisticated and slightly dense consistency, oak tannins and a lively acidity. It’s lingering, dry finish ends with a delicate hint of sweet almond.
This 100% Garganega grape wine produces an exceptional Suave is full of character, which is best complemented by polenta, fish, poultry or spicy food.
