Le Battistelle’s Soave Classico “Montesei” shows you the classic signature for volcanic wines; they never seem to leave your palate, they seem to deposit themselves on your tongue! The nose is full of sweet, white peach aromatics but once this wine hits your palate it explodes. That peach aromatic turns to plump sweetness on your tongue and then it is pierced by a bolt of volcanic mineral, that mineral just doesn’t go away, it doesn’t linger it dominates the sensation in your mouth for the next minute. While starting out as a supple, elegant wine the Montesei turns volcanic in your mouth. Tremendous finish and character for a wine at this price point! 12.5% ABV
Drink from 2017 to 2019

The "Montesei" is a real treat at such a nominal price! It begins with aromas of green apple skin and Crenshaw melon and reveals a bit of dried honey and florals as it opens. The palate is even richer with a creamy texture and a core of acidity that provides lift and length. There's a lot going on here at the price, so give this some time to open up.

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.
