Soave is one of Italy’s top whites, and it “deserves the kind of acclaim white Burgundy gets,” writes top critic and Master of Wine Jancis Robinson. This elegant exclusive proves the point: Ms. Robinson has even named Monte Calvarina her ‘Wine of the Week’ and rated it an impressive 16.5 out of 20 Points. We’re pretty excited for the newly released 2016, which is every bit as delicious.

It hails from local star Antonio Fattori. The Wine Advocate calls Antonio “one of the most talented winemakers in the Veneto” and says, of all his wines, “his white Soave expressions are the true standouts.” And thanks to excellent 2016 – the second top-quality vintage in a row in Italy – there’s never been a better time to try one.

Antonio sourced the fruit for his sophisticated Soave from a special vineyard, located on the steep slopes of Monte Calvarina (the inactive volcano from which the wine takes its name). Here, ancient volcanic soils impart a flinty minerality to the hand-harvested fruit. In the cellar, lees stirring and light oak aging add a rich texture and further complexity to the wine.

Look forward to vibrant aromas of apricots, white peach and lemon, underpinned by wild mint and sage. The palate is soft and rounded, with flavors of dried mango and apricot, mingled with fresh lemon and mineral hints. It makes a perfect match for grilled fish or seafood pasta dishes.
