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

Smokey and bright on the nose with a soft waxy edge to the rich and almost nutty yellow fruits that are tipped with just a hint of pollen. Silky and supple in the mouth but at the same time bright and tense with delicate heirloom apple and apricot flavors over a fine base of almost salty soil tones. There’s a big pop of fruit on the backend followed by a very light if modestly aromatic finish and salty, mineral driven finish.. Young, tense and quite precise. 88pts

Had it at a party last weekend and was totally amazed! Layers of aromas and flavors that were smooth yet complex. I've got to see if I can find this wine in the market. 92pts

A straw-colored garganega from Italy's Veneto, the 2006 Inama Soave has an elegant nose of sweet wildflowers like chamomile, elder and iris. Grown in mineral-rich basaltic lava, this wine has a firm mineral character with a soft almond characteristic at the back of the palate. Perfect as an apertivo or with delicate dishes and light fish.

Smoky, with a base of minerality and flavors of grapefruit, melon and blanched almond as well as a persistent thread of ground cardamom and ginger. Features good density and a fresh finish. Drink now through 2015. 18,500 cases imported. -AN Founded in 1960 by Giuseppe Inama, this 74 acre estate is located in Monte Foscarino, the heart of Soave Classico. Each vineyard imparts a unique element to the blend; the volcanic soils of Classico lends floral aromas and minerality, and the soils found in Colli Berici contribute depth and structure. The terra rossa soils of this subappellation are particularly well suited to growing Bordeaux blends and was the first region in Italy to plant Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Carmenere. In 1992, Giuseppe handed the reins to his son Stefano who carries on his fathers legacy of minimalist intervention in the vineyards and in the cellar. After a short maceration and gentle pressing, the must is left to settle before spontaneous malolactic fer...

Golden in color, this wine tastes like a roasted almond, the texture smooth, the finish clean and peppery. A patio white that’s simple and refreshing.

Inama Soave is a classic expression of the Gargenaga varietal, native to the Veneto region. Focused citrus and mineral aromatics with great acidity make this perfect for a variety of cuisine.
