2007 Suavia Soave

SKU #1043883

Listed in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2008. 90 points and a Smart Buys designation from the Wine Spectator: "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. 6,000 cases made." (08/08) According to Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "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." (08/08)

This wine was a real disappointment. The smell reminded me of a very rustic South African Sauvignon Blanc. Wet grass clippings and a sock. The smell was so offensive my wife put a coaster on my glass. I opened another bottle a few weeks later and it had the same offensive smell and taste. I would not recommend this wine.

Refreshing, with citrus and mineral, reminiscent of pinot grigio.

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
