Overview

The Inama family spent a long time asking local growers what Soave "used to be," when it was one of the best-known whites in the world. The answers weren't all that surprising but they did run contrary to much of what modern winemaking takes for granted. Old-fashioned techniques, using more skin-contact and less sulphur, appeared to be what was required. In all our trials Garganega responded incredibly well to this minimalist, almost ancestral oenology. The result is the definitive Soave Classico, alive, bursting with flavour, and remarkably long-lived.
