Grapes: Garganega, Trebbiano
Style: Off-dry and fruity
Country of Origin: Italy, Veneto
A fine and well-priced example of an undervalued Italian classic - from the hilly
vineyards at the heart of the Soave zone.
Montresor Soave Classico is made from a blend of Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave grapes, cultivated in selected vineyards around the Soave hillsides and hand-picked in September. The wine is held on lees for a few months and given a light filtration before bottling.
An excellent example of good quality Soave Classico, fresh and lightly fruity with delicate floral aromas of honeysuckle, elderflower and a hint of spice. Crisp and refreshing on the palate with good depth of ripe honeyed fruit, and a dry, lightly nutty finish.
A very versatile wine but excellent with simple fish such as grilled plaice or on its own well chilled as an aperitif. Also particularly good with Rissotti - simple herb versions are probably best.
