2019 Le Battistelle "Montesei" Soave Classico

SKU #1485832

Gelmino and Cristina Dal Bosco started their winery in 2002 when the family decided to stop selling their grapes to the local co-op and make wine themselves. The winery and vineyards are located in the town of Brognoligo in the heart of the Soave Classico production area that is limited only to the communes of Soave and Monteforte d’Alpone in the province of Verona. The Montesei bottling is 100% Garganega which is harvested by hand and vinified in stainless steel. The color of the wine is a yellow straw, and the profile bright and floral with mineral detail and refreshing energy. Antonio Galloni writes: "The estate’s vineyards are planted on very steep slopes on highly volcanic soils and the wines, though not the last word in sheer concentration, magically combine power and grace."

I've always really liked Soave. But for whatever reason it usually doesn't get drunken enough in my household. Not until recently anyway, when I found this reasonably priced soave on my shelf. My partner wanted sausage and sauerkraut the other night, and I figured a soave would pair really well with it. And lucky for me, the pairing was brilliant. Packed with a little bit of melon zest, the wine was a true delight... and I think I found myself another awesome bottle to drink over and over again for the summer.

Hand-harvested from multi-site vineyards rich in soils mixed with clay and silt, Gelmino and Cristina's "Montesei" is an easy drinking none complicated, just enjoy Soave. A touch of lanolin and citrus oil, green pear, lime, fresh green herbs of chervil reveal on the dot. Texture is mild with a tad bit of viscosity but overall this is a clean and lean wine perfect to enjoy with tuna ceviche with avocado and cilantro.

Wow! That’s what several of us were saying at a staff tasting last week, where this Soave was the first wine we tried. Pure and fresh, this is a delicious dry white wine. Soave is one of Italy’s most popular whites, probably because the good ones like this are so smooth, light, and easy to drink.
