Style:

Golden hues with a strong, floral fragrance. Balanced and elegant.

Food Match: Excellent with nourishing first courses and grilled meats.

A Soave where the natural clean acidity and freshness is still present. The old vines and late picking bring out the latent richness of the grape and an oak ageing to round out this full fleshy wine. Terrific with roast white meat.  The 2012 vintage was awarded 3 bicchieri by the Gambero Rosso guide, and the Corona award by  the Touring Editore "Vini buoni d'Italia" as shown on the producer's page.

 

 

 

Lovely family winery just outside the Classico region and therefore a little more circumspect in their pricing. So as Anselmi and Pieropan have produced wines that have revitalised the reputation of Soave  they have also raised their prices as well as their game. Vicentini have gone about creating wines that have all the flavour and poise of their supposed superiors but have kept their prices to a reasonable scale.

When we first met them in Verona a few years ago, we were just passing and noticed a tiny sign mentioning their 3 glass award. So we had a sip of their delicious oak aged Soave and loved it.  We sat down, tried their unoaked entry level Soave and were fully taken. It was three months later and back at base that we learned that they also made a lovely fruity Valpolicella!
