£9.95 a bottle

Pale gold in colour, this wine opens with a fresh, scented nose bursting with stone fruits and the characteristic almond blossom notes of a top quality Soave. Honeyed, waxy and complex on the palate, with a lovely citrus twist on the finish.

Origin

Soave is situated in the heartland of Veneto; geographically it sits right next door to red compatriot Valpolicella, creating a gentle and friendly rivalry. Yields are low and the vines south facing, so plants can gain the most from the Italian sun and volcanic soils, ensuring production of the best fruit. These grapes are sourced from a single vineyard – Montegrande – about 250 metres above sea level with excellent exposure to those cool summer breezes from the Dolomites.

Producer

Monteforte is a cooperative situated in the east of Soave, with 1200 hectares both inside and outside the Soave Classico zone. Many of their vineyards – including Montegrande – are situated on hillsides facing south and south east, producing riper and fuller wines than many of their contemporaries. Matt Thompson, renowned kiwi, winemaker and previous IWC ‘White Winemaker of the Year’ works with Gaetano Tobin to produce the coop’s wines.

Grape Variety

100% Garganega.

The wine undergoes small-batch vinification. Fermented in small and large 15 hectolitre barrels, aged for one year prior to bottling.

Food Match

Works very well with chicken, guinea fowl or pork corked in a richer, even cream, sauce.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
