Garganega is best known as the white grape variety used to make Soave and Gambellara in Veneto, northern Italy. However in the early years of the 21st Century, DNA profiling revealed that it is the same variety as Grecanico Dorato, a mainstay in the vineyards of Sicily.
This wine is made with grapes harvested in vineyards, located in oldest area of origin – the commune of Monteforte d’Alpone – that with Soave, makes up the classic Soave area. The distinctive winemaking technology employed yields an elegant and velvety wine with a delicate almond-scented nose.
It opens slowly in the glass. It’s silky in texture with ripe orchard fruits and mineral tones that build.

The roasted veggies and the roast organic chicken were a great match.
