100% Garganega, there is a juicy depth on the nose of this 2020 with flecks of smoke. Sumptuous and expansive, there is an irresistible fusion of white flowers, almond, fresh apple, pear and lemon on the nose and palate. Such artful fluidity and the satin-smooth texture shows the gentle influence of oak fermentation. Very well-judged.

A deep golden color captures the eye long before the 2020 Soave Classico La Rocca can captivate with its sweetly-scented mix of white flowers, crushed almonds, apple and hints of vanilla custard. It’s texturally deep and opulent in feel, yet this impresses even more with its saline-mineral core and vivid blend of baked pear offset by sour melon. The 2020 La Rocca leaves a staining of primary concentration, along with hints of candied lime that seem to fizzle upon the senses. There is so much balanced pleasure to be found here. No rush, there is easily a decade of evolution in store for patient readers. Drink 2023-2032.
Soave produces Italy's second most famous white wine after Pinot Grigio. The region is divided intotwo distinct zones - Soave, comprising most of the alluvial plains, and Soave Classico, encompassing the higher reaching hillsides.The wine is made mostly (if not entirely) from Garganega, an aromatic, light skinned variety that when grown on poorer, well drained soils with lower yields can create wines with notable flavour and concentration. Though known mostly for its dry whites, a rare dessert wine is also produced called Recioto di Soave that is made from naturally dried grapes.
