2016 Soave "San Rocco" (Monte Tondo)

Monte Tondo, Soave "San Rocco", Veneto, Italy 2016

100% Garganega

MEYER LEMON, PEAR, VIBRANT, LEES & SALINE

We're overjoyed that Soave has rebounded from ages of mediocrity! Two decades ago, top producers here began realizing the magic of the Garganega grape and produced distinctive, delicious wines of character, albeit at a higher price. We are now seeing the fruits of their labor trickle down, with reasonably priced gems such as this popping up. Monte Tondo does both, high-end and value wines of distinction.

Serving Suggestions: Scampetti con Polenta, which is the original Italian shrimp and grits. Risi e Bisi, the famous rice and peas dish of the Veneto region.

2015 Soave Classico (Coffele)

Coffele, Soave Classico, Veneto, Italy, 2015

{organic} 100% Garganega

LEMONGRASS, VERBENA, FLINT. JUICY & LUSH

A family estate since the early 1800s that fell into ruins after WWII. Guiseppe and Giovanna Coffele met as school teachers and chose a life of wine by resurrecting the family vineyards and learning to grow grapes again. Now 35 years later their children are following in the family footsteps and have elevated the winery to cult status among local wine lovers. Medium-full bodied, balanced flinty terroir, soft verbena/lemongrass and snappy bright floral flavors.

Serving Suggestion: In Soave they eat fried olives and sardines, but you can try fried okra and hushpuppies if those aren't handy.

2015 Soave Classico (Monte Tondo)

Monte Tondo, Soave Classico, Veneto, Italy 2015 {organic}

100% Garganega

ROUND PEAR & REFRESHING CITRUS, CHALKY MINERAL & YEASTY RICHNESS

Soave and its signature grape, Garganega, produce some of northern Italy's most distinctive, delicious wines. While the Soave Classico zone has long been celebrated as the epicenter of Verona's most exciting whites, the quality-to-price ratio has prevented some wine-lovers from discovering (or rediscovering) how characterful and rewarding these wines are. Monte Tondo provides us with some of our very favorite renditions, and these absolutely archetypal ambassadors for the area remain rather reasonably priced. Cin cin!

Serving Suggestions: Scampetti con Polenta (the original Italian shrimp & grits). Risi e Bisi, the famous rice & peas dish of the Veneto region.

2016 Soave Classico (Guerrieri-Rizzardi)

Guerrieri-Rizzard, Soave Classico, Veneto, Italy, 2016

100% Garganega

GREEN APPLE & PEAR, LIGHTLY FLORAL, LIMESTONE MINERALITY

Like other great Italian wines, Soave is fighting back against its popularity, a victim of that most sincere form of flattery - imitation. This is the real deal, grown in two of the best vineyard sites in Soave. Rizzardi produces a rich, classic Soave: subtle in its aromas, evocative of yellow pears and crisp green apples, a slice of canteloupe, a bouquet of spring flowers, and fresh rain. This is a Soave to take back its good name from the bottom shelf of the grocery store, climb to the top of the Castle of Soave (yes, it's a real place, and it overlooks these vineyards): Ricco Soave!

Serving suggestions: Pancakes & eggs. Fish/shellfish (frutti di mare!), lobster risotto w/ asparagus. As an aperitivo.
