On Saturday night I was about to order a Vermentino but our server convinced me to try the Soave Classico, I was skeptical. He brought over a taste of both and didn't tell me which was which. Ugh. An impromptu blind tasting in front of my dinner companions.

Of course, I was set up and walked right into it. I ID'd the Soave as the Vermentino. That was the whole point. This Soave is not a thin, generic one trick fruit bomb. It's surpassingly complex with medium high acid, lemon, peach, apricot, and wet stones with a bit of salinity. Paired perfectly with white pizza and arugula salad.
