#75 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008
Lots of lemon, white peach and mineral character, with hints of orange peel and dry almond. Medium-bodied, with good acidity and a crisp finish, leaving a lingering citrus aftertaste. Racy, nervy and delicious. Minerally, almost flinty. Drink now.
Suavia’s 2007 Soave Classico shows the complexity and character of this hillside site in its ripe yellow fruits, smoke, earthiness and minerals. The wine was very closed and reticent at the outset so I recommend opening it 30 minutes before serving to give it some air. Alternatively a quick double-decant should do the trick. This is a generous, full-bodied style of Soave that is sure to find many fans. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.
