a serious wine!


Three Stars
 Great Value!
Washington Post

“Soave has somehow fallen off the wine radar, but it shouldn’t. It’s an ideal summer white wine. This Corte Adami bursts with ripe peach and apricot flavors, leading to a long, refreshing dry finish."

Under the main town"s door, Porta Verona,
you can see many hanging grapes. This derives from an ancient custom of hanging the best grapes, called rece, to let them dry until Christmas.

 

 

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

Elegant, vibrant, crisp and savory, this refreshing white has lovely aromas of white stone fruit and wild flowers. Showing classic varietal flavors, the tangy palate doles out ripe pear, apple and citrus before a white-almond finish. The combination of 35 year old vines along with decomposed volcanic and granitic soils make this wine a hot weather standout! Soave pairs best with Roast Chicken, Focaccia, all Shellfish, Asparagus, Veal Scaloppini, Cannelloni, Chicken Parmigiana, Risotto, medium chesses and Pasta Primavera.






A bit about Soave.........

Among Italy’s classic whites capable of great potential, Soave is named after the medieval village and surrounding hillsides from whence it comes. The original, historical Soave zone, delimited back in 1927, covers the eastern, volcanic hillsides of today"s general Soave zone and is called Soave Classico.

Garganega, the indigenous grape responsible for great Soave, produces medium bodied white wines with fine acidity. Typical in the best Soaves are lively flowery and fresh herbal aromas and flavors such as orange zest, peach, melon and marjoram. The best can take some age and in so doing, develop notes of chamomile, marmalade and honey.
By the 1960s and 70s, Soave was enjoying such a glorious global reputation, that its demand forced growers to push beyond the zone"s original borders. Expansion led west out of the hills and onto the alluvial plain of the Adige River. This, coupled with an increase in yields and allowance of additional varieties such as Trebbiano, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, met demand but created a softer, fruit-forward, everyday Soave. Today the broader region can be the source of charming and value driven whites. But those labeled as Soave Classico or in rare cases, as Soave Colli Scaligeri (nearby hillside vineyards abutting the Classico zone), will be the best quality and age-worthy Soaves. These are often 100% Garganega.
