Review date: November 8, 2016
Wine Review: The Panel thought this straw colored Soave was very good and is well made. It opens with a fragrant mild peach bouquet with hints of green apple and lychee. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of ginger and hints of lemon and lime. The finish is dry and refreshing. The Panel suggested pairing this wine with shrimp scampi, stuffed mushrooms or baked brie with French bread. Enjoy - KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: This brilliant yellow straw colored wine opens with delicate aromas of almond blossoms, marzipan, white peach and honeysuckle. On the palate, crispy acidity frames flavors of toasted nuts, lemon zest pomme fruits and apricot. Superbly balanced and has a full, rich finish. It makes an excellent partner for soups, starters, especially vegetable based such as asparagus, peas, or seafood and fresh water fish dishes.
