Vicentini. Soave Superiore 'Il Casale'

  • 1860


Soave Superiore DOCG
Grape Garganega
Peach stone and floral on the nose, a very fine balance of where ripe, fresh elegant fruit is forged onto a mineral core, courtesy of the ancient volcanic rock that the vines are planted on.

The vineyards are at an altitude of two hundred on volcanic soils, they are trained using a guyot system and 60 hl/h are taken. Unusually, this is a pure Garganega and exclusively from the vineyard of Casale. The grapes are hand picked, sorted and fermented in temperature controlled steel tanks.

Past vintages.

2014
We particularly liked the 2014, it was a wet vintage yet with careful vineyard management the vines reached a full, natural ripeness.
There is a lovely little write up on the Jancis Robinson site if you would like to follow this link.
