Otto Soave Classico Garganega 2020

Pra Soave was calling to me from the back of the fridge and I heeded that call.

Like a really well crafted pop song, this wine is effortlessly enjoyable on a superficial level, but when I stop and think about it, there’s a lot underpinning this wine’s effortless enjoyability. Chablis like on the nose - intense minerality (limestone, but also that flinty volcanic stuff), lemon curd, pear, a hint of chamomile & blanched almonds. The texture is what makes it though - crisp but with gracefulness to it. Lively acidity in perfect balance with leesy bass notes.

It offers Developed aromas of dried prune, plum, raisin, blueberry, fig paste, kirsch, crème de cassis, anise, licorice, pipe tobacco, and wet earth.

This wine is dry, with high (15%) alcohol, a full body, medium acidity, medium tannins, and medium(+) intensity of flavors consistent with the nose.

Fresh at 9 years old. An achievement. Had a few years in it still, which tells me it’s a superior quality. Fun, fruity, electric. — 5 days ago

Just aged a tad too long. The first 90% of notes are delicious but the ending is bitter. Shame. — 5 days ago

62nd birthday-oh boy! The 07 Classico is so velvety, well integrated tannins and alcohol with a hint of dried figs, plums, and long finish. Great way to celebrate with my hubby! I will save the Riserva for another occasion with my sons and daughter in-law! — 13 days ago

Monster wine. Doesn’t feel 9 years old. Youthful, but powerful.

Very good. The burgers are not the only thing that’s smashed.
