Monte Tondo Casette Foscarin Soave Classico 2007 Wine Review (NW)
Lemon, apricot, and mango on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Ultra smooth and finely texured with apple, almond, and hints of vanilla
Here's a beautifully crafted Soave Classico from the Veneto region of Italy. It dances between tropical layers and an underlying tartness, but the real charm is the texture. The wine is ultra smooth and finely textured, just caressing the palate.
Soave is based on the Garganega grape and can contain several other white grapes of various proportions. It's one of the great white food wines of Italy that has suffered brand damage in the past as the term was used generically and not regionally. Expect to pay around $18 for this, and raise a glass!
