From 20-year-old grapes harvested from the oldest area of Soave ― the commune of Monteforte d’Alpone. Garganega can be quite insipid when yields are high, but thankfully this has had some care and shows some lovely Soave character. Earthy, light honey, elderflower, apricot fuzz, wild herbs and citrus oil fill the medium-bodied palate. Acids are tight, raising a skiff of lees and Bosc pear. Lean but concentrated (some botrytis here), with fine herbal salts on the finish.
