Inama Vin Soave Classico Vigneti Foscarino 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight on the nose with subtle flinty base notes and a gentle blend of balsamic herb, floral and cidery fruit aromas. Very smooth and polished in the mouth with fine balance between the supple acids and bitter almond and cider apple flavors that are layered over an assertive mineral base that shows great persistence on the long, almost salty finish. This is both more subtle and more elegant that Inama’s Classico bottling, though it may find a more modest audience because of it, but there is no doubt that this is a more interesting and complex with wonderful follow through on the very long finish. 91pts

Producing classic wines from the Veneto is our passion. In the 1950s Giuseppe Inama, the estate's founder, began purchasing small plots of vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico region using nothing more than his savings - at that time, few understood the area's potential. But Giuseppe was a believer. His idea was to assemble only top quality vineyards of old-vine Garganega and fashion from them a wine capable of restoring Soave's reputation. Today our estate comprises more than 25 hectares of vineyards in the very heart of the Soave Classico. In the 1990s we decided to expand our production to include red wines and, after much research, settled on the Colli Berici, a system of terrarossa hills some 15 kilometres (10 miles) east of Soave in the neighbouring province of Vicenza. At first glance the two zones appear to have little in common but they share one fundamental element: the possibility to produce wines reflecting a unique terroir. Each terroir is best expressed through a different variety. In the Soave Classico appellation the steep hills and the meagre basalt soils are carpeted with Garganega. An intensely aromatic variety, it was first planted here by the Romans and was originally known as "Grecanicum", a reference to its Greek origins, although it arrived here from Sicily via Campania where its cousin, Greco, is still widely planted. Isolated from its family, it gradually mutated through hundreds of generations. The name changed and so did the vine: its current, floral iteration gives voice to the inimitable blend of Alpine and Mediterranean influences found in Soave. Read less

succulent aromas of honey, apricot and herbs. The honeyed palate shows stone fruit flavours, a slight hint of spice and a long, intense length.
