Wine Critic Reviews:

Radiant and loaded with finesse, this stunning white opens with enticing scents of fragrant spring flower, acacia, white stone fruit and wild herb. The round, elegant palate is focused, precise and energetic, delivering peach, Bartlett pear, ginger and tangerine drop candy alongside bright acidity. It closes on a tangy mineral note evoking crushed oyster shell. A gorgeous wine. Drink through 2028.

Wine Enthusiast | 95 WE
Luminous pale straw color. Intense aromas of almond paste, lime, white flowers and crushed rocks. Juicy and fresh, with extremely well-delineated pomaceous orchard and stone fruit flavors that are very pure and vibrant. A beautiful Soave Classico.

Vinous Media | 93 VM
A rich, creamy Soave, with vanilla and spice hints accenting the glazed apricot, biscuit and pastry cream notes. Sleek acidity gives this definition and focus, creating a lightly mouthwatering impression on the smoke-tinged finish. Drink now through 2024. 1,650 cases made, 300 cases imported.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Veneto: Venice is one of the most romantic cities in the world - the city of love. So how could Veneto wines be any different? This north-eastern Italian region has to offer nothing but sweet, liquid romance poured into elegant bottles ready for your dinner table. With its importance growing more and more every day, Veneto has proven its capacity by producing the same amount of wine, if not more, as some more popular regions, such as Tuscany or Piedmont. It may have been considered small in the past, but no one can deny the quality of Veneto wines today. Veneto's reds are easily recognized for their sweet, but intense fruity flavors that together create an impressive scope of Corvina-based wines. Other typical varieties are Rondinella and Molinara, and they're all well-known for the palate rich with red fruits, above all sour cherry. On the other hand, there's a breathtaking portfolio of refreshing, lemon-flavored dry whites, mostly based on Garganega and Trebbiano varieties. All these wines are outstandingly complex and long-lasting, thanks to the wonderful Garganega grapes.
Type of Wine Italy (Other): There are dozens of grape varietals grown in Italy so no wonder they produce such a broad range of most exquisite wines. Some of the most cultivated red varieties are Nebbiolo, Aglianico, Sangiovese, and Barbera, while Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon are also popular. Among whites, you're likely to find Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano, or Vernaccia varietals.
