This Soave is made from 100% Garganega grapes. The varietal produces a light white wine. According to Jancis Robinson it is a “Veneto vine capable of making fine, lemon and almond-scented wines, notably but not exclusively from low-yielding vines in Soave, also Gambellara, Bianco di Custoza etc.” It is also called Grecanico in Sicily where it is late-ripening and can result in a tangy vino.
Notes: This light-bodied Italian white was very pale yellow with an abundant bouquet of citrus and spice. I thought acidity quite vibrant, and alcohol was off-dry a 12%. Flavors I tasted were a bracing citrus with honey and grass. It was a refreshing glass of wine. I enjoyed it and can certainly see this with hearty seafood dishes or perhaps contrapuntal to a rich cheese.
