Gini Contrada Salvarenza Vecchie Vigne Soave Classico 2014

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  549592

Bright golden-tinged yellow. Complex, deep nose hints at apple, pear, tangerine, almonds and sweet spices. Then fresh, very pure and clean, with remarkable depth and delightful acid-fruit balance. Long and clean on the multilayered, precise finish. Legions ahead of almost any other Soave I tasted this year and a real statement on what old vine Garganega is capable of, in the right hands. This wine also showcases just how good the much-maligned (wrongly) 2014 vintage was for white wines. Drinking window: 2017-2025. Score - 94. (Antonio Galloni,, May 2017)
