Montesei Soave Classico Garganega

Matté

Love this! Loads of ripe honeydew melon and pear fruit on the nose with a squeeze of ripe lime juice and herbal complexity showing oregano, cumin and fennel notes along with a wet chalk mineral edge. The palate has a slight effervescence (recently bottled at tasting, a 2019 tasted early 2020). Quick Fourrier shake and you’re good to go. Plenty of that ripe, green citrus fruit you find on the nose is here on the palate but with that slightly bitter almond character on a well balanced finish with ripe melon & grapefruit, juicy, mouthwatering lime finish. This is a wine that massively over delivers at its price point and I can’t think of the last time I had such an engaging and complete Soave. A volcanic gem! — 4 days ago

Le Bignele Classico Amarone della Valpolicella Corvina Blend 2013

Raisin, cherry, Raspberry, pencil lead, a bit of heat. Very wide and long palate with a extreme acid backbone and a lovely red fruit all along. It's radiating in all directions! Soft mouth feel but with a grip, a small tanginess in the rear, that gorgious fruit playing a very long tune for a wonderful finale with raisins notes. This is great! — 7 days ago

Tenuta di Corte Giacobbe

Soave Garganega 2018

Racy limestone minerality meet lemon pith and orchard fruit. Has a Chablis sensibility. Zippy acidity, with lemon and lime fruit. There is a sweet tart chalky fruit character too. Solid, enjoyable finish. Tart fruit is the predominant character on the palate. — 13 days ago

Deep ruby coloration. On the nose, cherry, currants, spice and tobacco. On the palate, dark cherry, raisin, prune, plum, tobacco, medium weight and silky smooth in the mouth. Long finish and surprisingly still strong tannins present. — a day ago
