2017 Pra Soave Classico "Otto"

SKU #1363012 91 points James Suckling

 I love the lemon-custard character of this ripe and succulent Soave. The finish is long and quite silky. Pure Garganega.  (11/2018)

90 points Wine Spectator

 A lively, lithe white, with lovely lime blossom, pink grapefruit sorbet, stone and spice notes that linger on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2022. (AN)  (7/2018)

My first sip of this wine transported me to the last time I was in Rome, dragging my luggage across the stony streets through a sea of people. I couldn't find my hotel and the wheels on my luggage snapped off. Frustrated, I marched into a random bar and ordered the first wine I saw on the list: Soave Classico. This crisp, refreshing white wine was just the drink I needed. I took a sip, sighed and smiled at the bartender. Suddenly, the broken wheels on my luggage didn't matter anymore. I have tried four different Soave Classico from Pra, and the light-bodied freshness of the "Otto" is simply my favorite thirst-quencher. It is so clean and elegant, with bright citrus acidity, notes of pear, a hit of minerals and a finish that lingers on the palate. Soave, take me away!

100% Garganega from volcanic soils done all in stainless and completely delicious. This is intensely aromatic with rich salty stone fruit and a flinty, green flecked finish usually found in a Grand Cru Chablis. The purity of fruit and mid-palate heft are wonderfully tempered by fresh acidity and long mineral nuance. Vines 30 to 60 years old give great intensity.

WOW! That's what several of us were saying at a staff tasting where this Soave was the first wine we tasted. Pure and fresh, this is a delicious dry white wine. Soave is one of Italy's most popular white wines, probably because the good ones like this are so smooth, light, and easy to drink. This wine comes from an area just east of Valpolicella and the grape is garganega. A great sipper for your summer brunches.

Pra has always been one of my favorite Soave producers and since we're currently out of the stellar Le Battistelle wines, I'm glad we can offer their 2017 "Otto". It's rich and round with delicious apple and melon fruit and excellent acidity throughout. We're not surprised that our first drop sold out almost as fast as it arrived but there's more on the way. This is Soave at its best.

My favorite thing about summer is how well it pairs with Italian white wines. The Pra Soave Classico is perfect for those warm summer evenings. 100% Garganega coming from 60 year old vines that are vinified in stainless steel. The expressive lemon and chalk nose is a preview for the bright, tart citrus flavors that linger on the long palate- could you ask for anything more refreshing?

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.
