Suavia Monte Carbonare Organic Soave 2021

$43.99

Moving up a notch to what is possibly one of the best Soave’s made. Bursting with minerality made by the Veneto winery Suavia – in fact, the producer says that ‘it is like having a piece of earth in your glass’. Suavia ‘Monte Carbonare’ has a heady nose of citrus, exotic fruits, wild flowers and mountain herbs and flint, leading to a creamy palate with a distinctive freshness of flavour.

Rating Vintage 2020

James Suckling 94/100

“Honeyed, white-almond and mineral accents to the lemony citrus and cantaloupe. Pure and tangy on the palate, with a hint of honeydew melon that lingers through the bright, long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. Screw cap.”

Wine Spectator 92/100

“Silky and mouthwatering, this well-honed white expands on the palate with rich flavors of pineapple, blood orange granita, clover honey and lime blossoms, while remaining graceful and focused throughout. Delivers delicate spice and mineral notes on the long finish. Drink now through 2028. 3,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.” Alison Napjus – Senior Editor and Tasting Director, New York
