|Region||Italy, Veneto, Soave Classico|
The mineral strength released by this cru is a note of great elegance. A remarkable olfactory complexity of ripe exotic fruit and yellow citrus fruits. A clear sapidity and freshness on the palate with a long finish of sweet almond and vanilla. Due to its structural complexity it can sustain a long aging in the bottle. Monte Grande is ideal with shellfish and more complex fish dishes such as sliced bluefin tuna from Calo Forte or salted sea bass. Suitable for savory pies, seafood risottos and white meat roasts.
The 2019 Soave Classico Monte Grande lifts from the glass to show kiwi and crushed stone, along with pretty honeyed florals, in an airy and wonderfully fresh display. It's intense and sharply focused, also quite mineral in style with orange zests and is salty to the core. This tapers off long, with residual acids keeping the mouth watering. It's a classic in the making. Monte Grande is a blend of 70% Garganega and 30% Trebbiano di Soave, which is left to dry on the vines for an extra month after the first harvest.
