Region: Soave Classico, Veneto, Italy Grape(s): Garganega Winemaker: Graziano Pra Drinks Best: Now - 2 Years
For years Soave has had a dubious reputation thanks to the poor quality wines that were produced to meet growing demand in the 1960s and 70s. But starting in the 80s a small number of producers – Graziano and Sergio Pra among them – focused on producing wines of superior quality using fruit grown on the region’s hillside vineyards instead of the high-yielding plains. This bottling, which is made using 100% Garganega, features lively aromatics of white flowers, ripe kiwi and green apples along with a medium-bodied palate that adds minerality and crisp acidity to the mix.
Already packaged up, ready to go, and stacked at the front of the store, our monthly Sir Walt’s Six Pack is a great opportunity to try something new at an even better deal at 20% off the regular price.
