Starts with a delicate floral and mineral nose, which follows through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with an exquisite, silky texture and a dense but subtle underlay of creamy mineral. Finely balanced, with peachy fruit and creamy almond character lingering on the finish. Drink now.
Lots of lemon, white peach and mineral character, with hints of orange peel and dry almond. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a crisp finish, leaving a lingering citrus aftertaste. Racy, nervy and delicious. Minerally, almost flinty. Drink now.
Fresh pear scents fill the aroma of this wine and ghost the finish. It feels juicy and light, with a cool acidity that keeps it clean. For pan-seared fillet of sole.
(95% garganega with 5% trebbiano di Soave) Light straw-yellow. Green apple and yellow plum aromas complicated by an intriguing hint of lemongrass. A touch herbal on the palate, where bright acids give lift to the modest apple and pear flavors. Finishes moderately long, with a hint of almond.
A pretty Soave, with lemon, white peach and light mineral aromas and flavors. Medium-bodied, with fresh acidity and a crisp citrus and mineral finish. Drink now.
This is an interesting mineral-driven wine, but therersquo;s also lots of lemon flower, white peach and blanched almond character, with a hint of fresh ginger. Medium- to full-bodied, with bright acidity. Drink now.
Suaviarsquo;s 2007 Soave Classico shows the complexity and character of this hillside site in its ripe yellow fruits, smoke, earthiness and minerals. The wine was very closed and reticent at the outset so I recommend opening it 30 minutes before serving to give it some air. Alternatively a quick double-decant should do the trick. This is a generous, full-bodied style of Soave that is sure to find many fans. Anticipated maturity: 2008ndash;2010.
