GINI Soave Classico, Veneto

Gini says: "This wine brings together the best expressions of our vineyards,
a single bottle to express the aromas and the flavours of our land harmoniously. The mention “Classico” distinguishes the Soave made from vineyards standing in the historical hilly area where Garganega grapes are traditionally grown."

100% Garganega, the wine is straw yellow with green-gold reflections in the glass. The nose is intense and fragrant, fresh white flowers including hawthorn, elder, and cherry, together with white peach and tropical fruit. The palate is all this plus blended in an elegant and harmonious way with almond notes and a balanced minerality.

But don't ask me! Wine Spectator Says 90 Points:
"A lithe, light-bodied white, with racy acidity and a subtle streak of mineral,
layered with nectarine, melon and pink grapefruit pith flavors. This is well-knit, with a lingering, lightly spiced finish. Drink now through 2020. 9,000 cases made."

Capitalizing on the move toward natural wines,
farms in Tuscany are embracing nature and going biodynamic.
"To the mystification of skeptics, the farming calendar is determined by heavenly bodies. Growers harvest when the moon is full and sap rises
in plants, mirroring the tides." New York Times

(Personal Note: "Kepos" from Ampeleia ($26) is my 2018 favorite wine
A blend of Meditteranean grapes including Grenache,
Carignan and Alicante Bouschet, this is what wine should taste like!)

And see Amazon Review of book by Elizabeth Gabay, Master of Wine
"Understanding the Pink Wine Revolution"


"This wine bucks the trend toward heavy, overbearing Cabernet
that too often shuts down on palate. Instead, this wine has texture and fruit
bound by tannin and acid to perform in glass and on palate.
Seductive in its freshness and fruit definition." 

James Suckling, 93 Points
"Pretty blackberry and blueberry aromas with black licorice. A full body,
firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish. Integrated and tight.  Best in 2020."

Robert Parker for Wine Advocate, 92 Points
"Notes of minty cassis, blackberries and cigar smoke, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
is medium to full-bodied, supple and velvety, with beautifully fine-grained tannins and a deep core of fruit. Generous and expressive. Drink over the next 5-6 years."
