Inama Soave Classico #0860 2007
Sweet perfume nose with a backbone of citrus. Slightly rich and almost buttery palate, but not too heavy; balanced well with moderate acidity and finish. Perfect match for left over fish and veggies. A new favorite!
really distinctive wine - makes you believe in value for money, even though its £16 in waitrose....!
I loved it when I went wine tasting.
External Reviews for Inama Soave Classico #0860
Pale straw-yellow color with a green tinge. Herbal and minty aromas mingle with banana, underripe pineapple and pear. Light and fresh on entry, with a pleasant herbal nuance to the ripe citrus and pineapple flavors. Bright acids give this wine considerable clarity and cut. Quite persistent for what is a base-level Soave in name only, as this is at a quality level far superior to that of similarly priced wines.
The 2005 Soave Classico Vin Soave is sweet and fat with an almost exotic quality to its up-front super-ripe apricot and peach flavors. It is a perfect introduction to the house style. Inama is another of the region's leading producers of Soave. The estate favors a richer expression of the wines, especially evident in the top selections of both Soave and Sauvignon.
Inama is one of the best producers in the Veneto, and this Soave Classico harkens back to the days when Soave was really something special.
The 2007 Soave Classico is quite pretty in this vintage. The wine reveals apricots, honey, flowers and almonds on a richly-textured frame. This is a fairly generous style of Soave that sacrifices a touch of aromatic complexity, but it is absolutely delicious all the same.
Fermented in stainless steel but aged for 15 months in wood, it has aromas of dried cherries, vanilla, and cassis. On the palate it is lush and full with flavors of black cherries, prunes, blackberries, and very subtle herbal notes among others.
Shows lavender and lemon character. Medium-bodied, with a crisp mineral finish and an intense lemon rind aftertaste. Drink now.
Shows mineral and sliced white peach character. Medium-bodied, with good fruit and a bright, fresh finish. Drink now.
