2017 Graziano Pra', Soave Classico Otto DOC
ORIGIN: Veneto, Italy
The Prà winery, although only started in the early 1980’s, has become not only one of the top producers in the Soave appellation, but one of the most important and visionary white wine makers in all of Italy (now red wine as well). The winery is run by Graziano Prà, whose family owned their vineyards for generations, but never commercialized the wines in bottles.
Garganega, is an ancient local white grape variety with an attractive lemon colour and a floral – fruity bouquet. Aromas of hawthorn and jasmine are particularly prominent, as are exotic yellow and white fruits such as peach and apricots.On the palate, the wine is medium bodied and flavoursome, full of fruit, with clear mineral notes. It is easy to drink, with an aftertaste of hazelnuts and nutshells.
