Bertani Soave Classico Superiore DOC '02, Veneto, Italy

A nice full-bodied white made mainly from a not well-know grape called Garganega.

Technical Data:90% Garganega, 10% Trebbiano di Soave and Chardonnay . A part of the Garganega is “over-matured” and vinified in large wooden tanks; the rest is fermented in stainless steel containers of small dimension with automatic temperature control. Fermentation in French oak barriques for the Chardonnay. The wine is aged for about 5 months in stainless steel containers, previous to the final refinement in the bottle.

Description:The wine opens distinctly to the nose with a floral bouquet emanating the typical fragrances of Garganega, with traces of elderberry in particular. It then offers the sweeter aromas of fleshy and yellowish-pulp fruit such as peach. The mouth displays a full round taste and echoes the nose of the wine with on the enry once again lots of peach and elderberry flavors and finishes on even more savoury notes with a hint of oak.

Food Pairing & Service:Ideal as aperitif or with appetizers, creamy pasta dishes or fish.


Suggested Retail Price:$12.99
