Inama - Vin Soave - Classico
Overview: Soave Classico is the hilly area where vineyards were planted during Roman times. It is uniquely suited for developing white wine with its volcanic soil: pure basaltic lava, the only area with these particular characteristics in Northern Italy. The area was originally planted with the ancient Graecanicum (meaning from Greece) variety. This name was then transformed into Garganega in the local dialect. During the ‘60s Giuseppe Inama, the estate’s founder, began to purchase small plots of vineyards in the heart of the Soave Classico. Although Soave was the most famous italian white wine worldwide, few producers really understood the importance of owning the best plots to secure a future of top-notch quality wines. The intuition of the founder was to foresee the potential of the Classico area to produce wines unrepeatable elsewhere. Mineral and floral wines, elegant and balanced to fully match the concept of a wine that goes beyond the market trends.
Tasting Notes: On the nose there is the nectar of field flowers such as chamomile, elderflower, iris. Mineral on the palate with an almond finish, typical of Classic Garganega.
