Cantina di Monteforte Soave Classico 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The Cantina di Monteforte is situated in the eastern part of Soave Classico and Soave. They have 1200 hectares in total, part in Soave Classico and part outside the Classico zone, with some of the best vineyards in Soave Classico. 60% of their vineyards are on the hills, facing south and southeast. This gives wines that are riper and fuller than most others produced in Soave. The co-op has 600 members and harvests about 20,000 tonnes of grapes a year. About 80% of its production is white, 20% red. The climate here is continental, with hot summers and cold winters. The heat of the summer is mitigated by cool breezes blowing down the Alpone valley from the foothills of the Dolomites to the north. This gives warm days and cool nights, which helps with the accumulation of aromatic characters in the grapes. Matt Thomson, winemaker for the Alpha Zeta range in Italy and Delta in New Zealand, works with Gaetano Tobin at the Cantina to produce these wines. The wine is clean, bright and light in colour, with an attractive, fresh, open nose, with perfumes of almond blossom and white flowers. On the palate it has excellent depth and a lovely balance between ripe, aromatic fruit and fresh, zingy acidity. Clean and spicy on the finish, this wine surpasses all but the very top names in the zone.

Countrytime Lemonade all in this piece. Some slick marzipan residue as well. I paired this with chicken cutlet and gnocchi with alfredo sauce.
