And thats a good thing.
95% Gargenega and 5% Trebbiano di Soave. Often small amounts of Chardonnay or Pinot Bianco massage the flavours.
Big Names. Bolla (owned by the largest wine producer in Italy) has been producing wines since 1883. Banfi is a massive distribution partner. Soave means “soft” in Italian. And it’s said that Frank Sinatra wouldn’t sit in a restaurant that didn’t have Soave Bolla on the menu. Soava represents both the region (North Eastern Italy) and the style of wine.
It’s not often that one finds a wine that will stand up to being on it’s own, served with lighter fare like grilled seafood, chicken, fish-based pastas and entrée salads, or as an appertif. This one works with whatever/however you serve it.
Notes of melon, pear and ripe apple abound, followed by a long and lingering finish.
Great Value and a really nice wine for all seasons.
