Soave Classico Inama S. Bonifacio Vr 2003

Member Review by twilliamsiii:

Great table wine. Fruity with apple and pear overtones. For a decadent carb-fest: bake some ciabatta bread, spread some butter, and enjoy with this wine.

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

Wine Tasting NotesDeep red color. On the nose an intense bouquet of small berries, dried cherries and vanilla. Soft and round on the palate, without any acid or tannic harshness. Persistent and pleasant finish. Ideal with food classically combined with a bordeaux type wine. Also great to be drunk on its own or with light dishes which allow the flavor of the wine to be fully enjoyed.
