Soave I Campi 2009 750ML 2009

Sku: 043429

An excellent example of Soave! It's a blend of 85% Garganega and 15% Trebbiano di Soave. NO Chardonnay! The vines are planted in 100% volcanic soils, hence the name "Campo Vulcano." Flavio Prà is a fourth generation winemaker in Soave, from the famed Prà family. He's a keen student of enology and has honed his craft to conceive his own brand, I Campi. Flavio insists that the best Soaves are the result of ideal soil for the grapes. He has found his "campi" or fields which have 35-year-old Garganega. All his vineyards are cultivated using natural methods, no synthetic fertilizers or chemical interventions. ALSO: Soave Classico refers to a particular area near Verona and these sites are considered the oldest in the Soave DOC. Taste: Utterly balanced wine that always makes me salivate. Lovely melon, mineral and chalk (thanks volcanic soil!) on the palate. Medium-bodied. Astonishing length on the finish. Don't over chill or you'll kill the experience. – Melissa S.

Food pairing
Food you ask? Since this Soave is vinified in stainless and contains zero Chardonnay, it's perfect for all manner of antipasti, fish (tuna, cod, salmon), risotto and salads (traditionally, radicchio). Drink young, never cellar. – Melissa S.
