Soave is a small town located east of Verona and is known for it's simple white wines made from Garganega and Trebbiano. This wine is 70% Garganega and 30% Trebbiano.
This very light in color white shows aromas of citrus peel, wet concrete, raw peanut, banana chips, and maybe even a bit of tropical fruit like coconut. I honestly wasn't expecting the nose to be so complex and interesting! A very pleasant surprise....
On the palate I get really interesting flavors of fresh tangerine, yellow apple, concrete/mineral, apple skin, and a slight hint of nuttiness. There is nice crisp acidity and just the slightest hint of alcohol on the finish.
Well folks, I did it.....I found a great little wine for under five bones that delivers great quality and would pair tremendously with light seafood and salad dishes. 85 points
